Almost always finds to be had....

On the dog walk this morning was grubbing around underneath a Horse Chestnut tree and spotted the obvious yellow-white cocoons of Cameraria ohridella on the decomposing leaves from last year. I'm always amazed at how something so small endures the winter so well, good old Mother Nature (or maybe not in this case if you happen to be a Horse Chestnut tree!).
