Into Hibernation...

Good to find one larva in hibernation in Savernake yesterday -

Most are still on the leaves, colouring up -

Every year I hope for cold, wet weather at the start of November, so that larvae don't wander far before conking out, and I can find them easily ...  but every autumn we get ridiculously mild weather precisely then, and larvae wander far and wide...  Cross.
