Description:

the caterpillars for these were in a bush I moved from the front garden to the back. I will put the photo of the caterpillar on when I find it. We kept them safe and gave fresh leaves every day. after a few days they wrapped themselves in a web like substance. I checked on them everyday and yesterday they hatched into the most beautiful moth. Very samll, just over one c.m. long and white with little black spots on. very nice indeed. I have no idea what they are, they are not in my book.
