Leopard Moth – Zeuzera pyrina
What a surprise finding this big moth (about 2 inches, 5 centimeters) right in front of our door one morning: a Leopard Moth (Zeuzera pyrina – Blausieb or Kastanienbohrer). One of the German names describes it very nicely “Blausieb” means “blue sieve” because the blue dots are shining blue-ish in the sun.
What I only saw when I looked at the photos is that she lay her eggs right there on the floor – I assume that those yellow little things are eggs.
I moved here then a little bit to the rim of a pot.
