The Vapourer!

It felt like a quiet, gentle meet-up this month – time to look after the trees, set the poor things free from their shakles – more weeding as ever – Margaret brought a few beauties from her garden too.

ZigZagPanoramaJuly2014The day wasn’t without it’s moment of excitement though. While cutting back the ivy and elder, a fantastic marvel was spotted creeping across Martin’s shoulder: A spectacular caterpillar, larva of the Vapourer Moth or Rusty Tussock. Apparently it’s quite common, but none of us had ever seen anything so strange and wonderful before.
