EMPERORS MATING




There were two female Emperor Moths in the trap this morning. I placed them on a nice tussock of thrift on a bank. Early this afternoon one of them had attracted a male. When they have QUITE finished I will put her in an old aquarium with some heather and birch leaves and hope for some nice caterpillars.
