I am just blown away by the beauty of the little case that the moth build itself, all with materials found in nature. I am even wondering whether it borrowed some of my wool for the soft fluffy collar!
Case moths spend most of their life as a caterpillar and camouflage themselves by building a little case which is made of leaves and twigs. They take their little shelter everywhere and sometimes you see the head pop out and the caterpillar starts moving.
The ones we had seen up to now where maximum 9cm long, so I was quite impressed.
I thought I was talking about art. Well this case moth is a great inspiration for my creativity, especially when working with wool. We'll see what I come up with.
