Bye bye Bob

Bug Mad Girl let Bob go this evening, so he can have his freedom and do his moth thing. He's out on the Buddlea at the moment and will no doubt fly off as soon as it gets a bit darker. We're going to hang on to Betty for another day or two, just in case she lays us some eggs, then she can go free too.

Let's just hope Bob doesn't get picked up in a moth trap and become a celebrity!

As we totally missed Betty hatching, the next best thing is to show you the inside of her chrysalis. It's very thin, crispy and delicate. She broke open the head end of the chrysalis, then split right along the underside and must have just walked out.
