Cocoons are opening!

The kids are very excited.

The cocoons that have sat so quietly for the last couple of weeks are just starting to change. Three silk moths have emerged last night and are sitting on the mulberry leaves drying their wings. We were nervous that they would fly all around the house but have found out that Silk Moths cant fly. They will just mate and lay eggs in the box before dying.

It has to be said, they are a very strange looking creature!
