10th April 2012

Finally, after 3 years of trying, I managed to attract a wild male Emperor Moth to the garden this afternoon using a captive-bred, 'displaying' female. But it was all over very quickly - the male appeared out of nowhere and landed by the container holding the female only to be seized and carried off by one of the local Robins! The photo is therefore of captive-bred moths.
