Moth on a shrivelled nest




The photograph above shows a moth resting on the shrivelled nest of an ashy prinia warbler. The leaves are of the creeper "flaming glory bower'.

I have just written a blog on the caterpillar I found on the leaves of the elephant foot yam plant.

Can some one identify whether the moth has metamorphosed from the caterpillar shown? Or are they from different species?

Coming back to thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. Besides, responding to your doubts about growing custard apple in delhi/ggn...
of course, they'd grow in Delhi and in Gurgaon. Fertilize at a time before dormancy else the nutrients are not absorbed. 1:1:1 or 1:2:1 ratio of of nitrogen, phosphorus, potash should work well. Mix the fertilizer into the soil and water to let it seep. Good luck!

Thanks. I use home made compost. It should work too!

Chanced across your lovely blog. It is a delight to read.
I wish I could answer your query, but I guess, it needs someone way more knowledgeable to do that.
Will come back for more. Keep posting.
