They are here!

Yesterday, thanks to the warmer weather, my Emperors starting hatching en masse. I appreciate MW's have probably pupated already. The Assembly cage is out today with 13 females (and 2 to be added in half an hour when wings are straight and hard). Last year it was out about a month earlier with no success. Perfect weather so let's see. Peter Hall

Update. At 1.50pm a male arrived to fly actively around the cage (with by now 15 females in). I caught it and added it to the cage and within a few minutes it had coupled.
