We had a big surprise the other day - or rather, five small surprises. This very small - but also very determinant - hen, returned from a long absence and proudly presented these lovely tiny treasures. We had thought her eaten by the fox, a fact that didn't lessen our surprise. But oh, I understand her being so proud. Aren't they adorable? - See the little yellow rump on the guy to the right?
"Here's looking at you, kid". It's a Phalera bucephala ... or is it turning into one? ... anyway, it'll become a lovely moth someday soon. In danish it's called Måneplet - which means Moon spot. It has golden spots on the wings that looks like tiny moons. We put it in the beech hedge after studying it, since it likes to eat beech and birch leaves.
