l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Cecopia moths mating June 4th

I was very fortunate to have witnessed one of these big moths never mind 2 mating. First the female was hanging on to this wall and then the next day she was joined by a male. They mated all day into the night. She was there 2 days total. Then the 2 parted ways. The female will go and lay her eggs and they both after a week will both die. There job done. Then we noticed in behind where they mated was a big cocoon from same species.We are hoping that it will hatch very soon or it means it has died over the winter months. Which would be a real shame. These big beautiful nocturnal moths are nothing but big gentle giants of the moth world. Incredible. They are covered in fur of vibrant colors. These 2 were very freshly hatched so hopefully this one to will hatch out to fid a mate and complete the cycle again.
