Hawkmoths really are fantastic!
From the beautiful to the not quite so attractive ...
Slime mould may not be the most glamorous thing in the natural world (let's face it, with slime and mould in your name, you're going to struggle to shine), but it's fascinating stuff. When a large yellow sponge-like one appeared overnight on a wooden sleeper in our garden, Bug Mad Girl couldn't resist investigating further.

During the day the slime mould dried out and gradually turned harder. It will be completely gone within a day or two.
I love it that she's so curious about so many different types of wildlife!
