#day2 with #growgilbertgrow - I was observing Gilbert, who seemed to be resting after spinning his nice little silk pad, and I noticed that he was now positioned with his back end on the silk pad and his mid section seemed to be starting to droop, as some of his legs were no longer gripping the mesh. I snapped a photo, then right in front of my eyes he dropped into his J form, hanging upside down from his silk pad on the mesh! I can't believe I saw it happen! I checked the time stamp on the two photos (just before and just after he dropped) and both said 8:00pm on the nose! So prepare for pupation! He should be all wrapped up in his #chrisalys#pupa within #24hrs!
No dress rehearsal This is our life 💜🕺🏻🎶. Last year’s abandoned hornet nest...finally fell 🌧 🌳 🐝
This maybe a rubbish video but I just had to try to show you that the #trees looked like they were on fire tonight with plumes of smoke, but in actual fact they are plumes of #gnats . Twirling round as if they were starlings. There were so many that there was a constant noise as if a train was imminently going to pass by. #naturesflyingformation#flyingphenomena#insects#lifecycle#nature
