|Black-tipped Ermine, Yponomeuta plumbella|
Growing old is a tiring and complicated business. But it was never meant to happen to us. Not in this way. Not stuck in a dying body.
Jacks is back, hurray. And we shall see her for supper.
Captain Butterfly - should I say Captain Moth - has found a meadow full of Black-tipped Ermines. A lovely name for a lovely creature. I hope to visit the meadow with him one evening and see them for myself.
There is much flutter in the Butterfly World as a Yellow-legged Tortoishell (or Scarce Tortoishell) is visiting us this summer.
