Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she wonderful
Isn’t she precious
Less than 150 minutes old…
Okay, so that last line of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Isn’t she lovely’ song I made up.. but hey, our Atlas Moth is out!
What a little beauty! And it all happened… six days into our little ‘big brother’ experiment of training a webcam on a couple of Atlas Moth pupae!
Here’s a select snapshot of what unfolded in the hours of about 9pm-11.30pm last night.
By no means amongst the largest Atlas Moths, this one (whose sex is yet to be determined) marks the first successful effort to document the emergence of a moth in Science Centre’s very own backyard-an experience I won’t be forgetting anytime soon!
