Catch up of recent lifers

These are my recent additions to my life list/garden list. It's been a bit hectic just recently so apologies for no real story behind this lot! I probably don't need to tell you all how excited I was to get Beautiful Hooktip in the garden though! Lovely moth...

The other interesting news is that a friend at work discovered some Mullein caterpillars in her garden and didn't want them destroying any more plants. 4 in total were left on my desk, and they duly came home and into a suitable pot ready for hatching. Apparently they could take up to 5 years to become moths so we could be in for a long wait...
