A wonderful natural history image, it must have been a real privelege to witness the emerging first hand. This can't be one of this years brood surely!

Beautifully timed to capture it before the wings were expanded: did you get a subsequent shot with the wings more 'inflated'?

Many thanks for all of these comments. I bought in the livestock when they were chrysalids. I had 10 of them and had to stay close once the first on had emerged. It was set up in my garden. I have a video on YouTube which shows how I did the same thing with some moths....

Ronnie, if you take a look at my previous upload it should answer your question, Cheers!
