Dead Witches.

Thanks to Father Sanchez I believe these giant visitors to be Black Witch Moths. It would seem that whilst  feeding on this night scented plant  their proboscises got stuck in their search for nectar.


  1. Amazing. And so funny that the witches got their long noses stuck in the nectar! There is a fable in there somewhere.

  2. hi peggy, yes, T reckons the plant poisoned them but I think they just chose the wrong time. These flowers only last for a short time and perhaps they capsized on the moths as they were feeding. Fable sounds fab!


thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
