Garden Wildlife – Part 8 Angle shades pupa

I came across this pupa in the garden, after doing a bit of research I think it is a pupa for an Angle shades moth.


I’m hoping to be able to film it hatching using timelapse.

This is a photo of a caterpillar from December


This is the moth it will become. I took this photo in the house last year.
