Ellie Update

Another busy week, during which I somehow missed a big change in the Elephant Hawk larvae .......

Most have turned into this dark brown variation, though not entirely convinced that they've all gone through an instar change to get there. Not all have changed colour though, and the two biggest are both c35mm - one green, one brown. There is quite a big size variation now though. Rosebay Willowherb still preferred, and there are 28 still extant (the runty one didn't make it!).
