The sun is shining and Mrs W & I are out for a stroll up West Downs Beacon, the highest point between Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth (with lovely views along the coast and of the Exe Estuary.) As we near the top of the Beacon the path cuts in onto the Golf Course, due to erosion of the cliffs. Here, no doubt to protect walkers from flying golf balls, a net fence has been put up along the path. Walking along the net we notice that there are lots of pupa casings attached to it. Today seems to be the day for many Burnet Moths to emerge from their pupa’s. They are either drying out their wings or flying around us. Their black wings shining with a green iridescence in the sun.
£45 – 12 x 10” mount size ready for framing. Would fit in a standard frame.
