    Oh amazing! I love that all the males came calling! Yep they do wriggle about a bit, which is weird when you are not expecting it!

    We currently have a cinnabar chrysalis in the kitchen, we usually have one or two on the go. As you say it’s a real experience to see them hatch.  Moths are definitely under appreciated by most!

    A great thread @Jellyfire! Fascinating to see all the moth photos.

    I only have a photo of one moth, from last summer (posted before in Insects of the Day) — a cinnabar moth — it’s so striking I thought I’d add it here.

    Lovely @Athelas, cinnabars are stunning, and fly in the day so easy to see them too

    I've been waiting for an update, lovely to see both, that Ermine is pretty special.

    We’ve had much needed rain pretty much every night this week @Sheps, great for garden, not good for lightbulbs!
