Rathfinny Wine Estate

Bizarre evening find

Many of you may know I am a keen cyclist.  I get my fix whenever I can.  When I returned from a night ride across the Downs and back through the Estate I found this on my bottom bracket near the pedals.

Not a pretty beasty and one I couldn’t identify.  So with the power of social media it was ID’d as a juvenile (something – possibly a moth) which has not been able to escape its carapace/cocoon.  I was dumbstruck.  Even more so when I removed it from my bike and saw the speed it could move across the ground!

Moth has since disappeared into the undergrowth and bike has been cleaned.
