Waiting . . .

This little mite emerged from it's cocoon today.

I'm not going to try and sex this one - last year I got it wrong every time!  But it is rather fat.  It's wings are very stumpy and mis-shapen, but that's OK because it doesn't need them.  One thing's for sure, it'll never win any beauty contests!

The other cocoons are still intact, so this little one will just have to wait for a mate.

  1. It's female - big fat body. The males have slightly better wings, and thinner bodies with upturned 'tails' at the end of their bodies.
