Angle shades

So today's photos are of the latest homegrown moth :)
Last weekend, Bert found a coccoon in one of his work boots, which he gave to me.
Of course I put it away safely in the hatching tank.
Especially considering the coccoon was moving in my hand already.
So every day I checked the tank (which is always high on a shelf to make sure killer cat, aka Loa, can't get at it) and this afternoon I found an angle shades peacefully resting in the corner.

So when Bert got home, it was releasing time (because sooner or later Loa would realise that it was in the house and no one would ever sleep or rest again 'till we released it).

Much like Houdini, our previous home hatched angle shades, this one was super tame too, but far less reluctant to go outside (this one seemed super happy to go nest nice and snug in the ivy).
