From Bizarre to Beauty.

Last week I had an invite from Nigel to visit his Wood near the Sussex/Kent border where he had found some White Admiral larvae, a larva I had never seen before and one which looks very bizarre. They moved very slowly and got into some very odd positions as they moved along the honeysuckle. Unfortunately I was not able to find any myself but Nigel managed to find another 3 to add to the 3 he had already found.

And to think this beast turns into the beautiful White Admiral butterfly.

Just before we left for the wood I photographed a Great Prominent moth that Nigel had caught in his moth trap the night before. Another new species for me. Many thanks to Nigel for a great day.
