Reared Elephant Hawk Moth -Ella Side

Reared Elephant Hawk Moth -Ella Side
Some folks may recall us finding a pupa of a moth in the beginning of April (Large Pupa) So we brought it home due to its unfortunate location in a wet muddy footpath and raised her.

We've kept her in dirt in a bug house with wire mesh sides, lightly misted her about every 2 - 3 days and in a cool dark room and she finally emerged today :D

Plump and pink and flight tested we took her back to the location we found her at Filsham and let her go.
