Buff Tips disguise themselves as a twig. Last year a moth laid lots of eggs in the moth trap, so we kept them until they hatched, them put them out on the Silver Birch tree in the garden. They were brilliant hairy caterpillars that ate their way through the best part of a branch of the tree. It would be brilliant if these two moths were from our garden caterpillars.
|Pale Tussock - with amazingly hairy legs!|
|Small Phoenix - with it's bottom stuck up in the air!|
We also caught 2 Pinky Pointies, 1 Bird Poo Moth and 1 Copper Dart. We're not sure what these three are really called so made up our own names! They're all quite pretty though!
|Pinky Pointy - really a Bee moth|
|Bird Poo moth - really a Chinese Character|
|Copper dart - really a Common Marbled Carpet|
