Such pretty colours on the moth. Nowadays I see a lot of caterpillars amidst my plants. I hope I'll be able to capture the moths (when they come) as well!

BTW, your header photo is fantastic!

Thank you for posting this, although I would like to learn more about these moths, and learn what their larvae look like.

Thanks dear for your visit and asking question. The Cocoon stage greatly depends on temperature. In my case moth emerged on the 6th day.
