After a long sleep...

...another of my Emperor Moths has hatched.  She pupated two summers ago, so I hope the wait has been worth it.  I've tucked her into a muslin bag, as recommended, and am keeping an eye out. I'll release her tonight or possibly tomorrow, after the grandchildren have had a chance to see her.  I think that there are two, maybe three, cocoons still to hatch out of the original 25 or so.  Many thanks to the UTM blog members who advised me to be patient.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon
