Description:

I rear various moths each year and was very happy when this Swallow-tailed moth emerged today! I found a tiny caterpillar last year on one of my mum's currant bushes whilst collecting leaves for some different larvae. I suspected that it might be a Swallow-tailed moth larva but wasn't 100% sure so now I have the proof!
