Vapourer


Was walking up above North Dean Woods yesterday and heading back on Scholes Lane and saw a moth going bananas, decided it was worth a look and to see if it landed. Glad I did it was a male Vaporer with a female and cocoon that then started to mate.It was on the wall just before Scholes Farm heading from Greetland.

Male Vapourers are very easy to dismiss as a small, non-descript butterfly so well found. There's every chance the female's laid her eggs on her old cocoon so might be worth going back to have a look if you're in the area.
