Silkworm moth’s ghostly shadow - Erica Pitman, Finalist in the Primary School Category2011.


This is a photo is one of my silkworm-moths. I have had silkworms for pets for four years and every year I love watching them hatch from teeny tiny black specks, then eat lots of mulberry leaves, and make their cocoons and then hatch out to mate with each other. This moth looks like a ghost in a scary movie, but they are not scary at all.
