After a long day in the City and arriving home around 7.30pm I had a walk around the garden and noticed one of the Larva emerging from the pond.
I then decided to spend the next few hours watching the process of the adult going through a final larval moult that takes place out of water.
Here below is the pictures of that process

As I said in a previous blog a friend had made me a Moth Trap as I expressed an interest.
This is the 2nd Month of using the Trap and I must say that it is very addictive as well as the anticipation of opening up the trap in the morning to see what I have caught
