Turning to beauty


Only ten days after breaking up their artificial winter, referring to the time spent in the fridge, the first adult Giant Peacock Moth (Saturnia pyri) hatched. It was a giant, vital male. My the first member of Saturniidae, a family of moths,I’ve ever experienced with my own eyes.

This hatching individual was proof that the micro climate the cocoons spend their winter in was appropriate. At the same time, I also accomplished one more challenge of the Pyri Project: To get the chrysalises hatch and experience the adult, and particularly their beauty. Not only the pattern but especially the size is amazing.

This post is only about sharing some photos of the freshly hatched moth. I’ll get back to the next challenge later, which is pairing the adults to produce eggs. And that particular challenge turned out to be the ultimate mission.
