Lime Hawk update
2 days ago I put the female Lime Hawk (mentioned in my last post) in my garage and expected her to fly off at dusk, I went out to check at 10:30pm and found she was still there along with 8 more eggs which I collected and have placed in a rearing tub. Last night I went out to check on her again and got another surprise....she had a 'gentleman caller' shall we say and he erm stayed the night!, I went out there half an hour ago and witnessed the amazing spectacle of her laying eggs....95+ of them!!. I now have over 100 Lime Hawk eggs so it looks like I'm going to need a bigger fish tank!. :0)
