Now For Something Completely Useful

Just for a change a lurch into an invitation in nature study.  Real nature, not what some may think.  This is about a seasonal feature of our environment which probably affects many of us.

The great question that most have either been asked or have made is the urgent one  "What is that on the ceiling " followed by a debate about who is going to deal with it when it has been identified.

I am grateful to the UK Nature Blog for this one, a site which has some great pictures of our lesser known and rarely pictured creatures.

It is a serious matter, in that as our way of living changes so much that of the many and various creatures that either live with us or upon whom we impact will change, often for the worse.

There are no prizes and no fame to be gained from adding your contribution to this study apart from the satisfaction of doing something useful.

If encountered kindly leave the creature at the end of the garden.

  1. Only this week my wife pointed to a small translucent something where wall meets ceiling. I poked at it and it turned out to be a caterpillar in a cocoon. Presumably a moth.
