Pupae Predation : (



















Leaf-fattened we marched,
then outwardly quiet hung,
still.  Snap of wren's beak.

Bewick's wren is a small but mighty predator of insects.  Of the seven nymphalis antiopa pupae on the front of my house, two have survived the hunger and sharp eyes of the birds through the twelve days (so far) since pupation.

Hello.
I started to write blog in English.
I will write about everything, will be a lot of pictures, reviews of books, films, songs etc.
So it would be nice if you visit my blog sometimes :)

AW- I hope the last two make it. I would be very tempted to meddle with nature -even up the odds a little.
