Transformation

This is a Cinnabar moth, newly emerged from its cocoon. When I look out of my door, I look for the little things. Nature is my neighbourhood. I overwintered twelve Cinnabar moths that I’d nurtured from caterpillars. Eleven emerged safely. The twelfth, unfortunately, hatched a parasitic wasp.

This is an incredible picture, Carrie. The moth must be tiny, considering the size of the leaf underneath. His vivid colors are so artistic! Nature is the best of all neighborhoods. Thank you for sharing this treasure.

It’s the wings that stand out Carrie, so beautiful, and large.

Love our cinnabar moths! We get a lot of the caterpillars round here once the ragwort starts growing in! The boys love them!

This was amazing, Carrie. Cinnabar moth’s color is very stunning. I love nature too. It will always be my neighborhood.

I have to admit that I usually don’t give moths as much thought as butterflies. However, you have taught me that there is a whole other world next to it. The world of moths seem to cover a huge and varied art collection.

The red on it really stands out against the grey. It is a beautiful creature. It is so nice to hear that nature is your neighbourhood.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
