Happy New Year! Sorry for not posting anything on this page for awhile but I started a new venture last year and have been busy building these fantastic geodesic dome structures. Go take a look and share to help me promote my newish venture, thank you.

I have been very busy with my other business @snowdondomes but I am still rearing and pinning moths in the background. Just need to find some time to frame these up.

This is what moths look like when they live out their lives to the full. Most of the pristine specimens you see framed have been euthanized to provide a perfect specimen. So when you see the world 'ethical' it normally means that the specimen was bred in captivity rather than taken from the wild. Don't get me wrong, they have a far higher survival rate bred in captivity as no predation or parasites in the larval stage and wild stocks are not impacted by hordes of collectors. Those that do breed must never release back into the wild if that species is not present in that environment or area or if the stock has come from a different area as this could have detrimental effects on other species or the natural flora. So if you are seeing the word 'ethical' being used just think which ethics you appreciate more.

I apologise for lack of posting lately, I have been busy trying to get my other business off the ground. Not that I am giving this one up, this has always been my hobby business. Something I do to relax and I don't want to ruin that by doing this fulltime. As many people during this time are feeling, I haven't been in a mentally good place to do justice to the dead so am taking a little break from Taxidermy. But in the meantime I have created a few printed clothing items that will hopefully take your fancy. I have designed all of them but do use another company to print and deliver as this is out of my expertise. Hope you like and please keep safe during these troubling times. Any questions or if you would like to see a specific item in my shop then please do contact me.

With lockdown boredom well and truly set in, an ad for printed clothing came up. So I edited a couple of images of the moths I have framed and designed these printed leggings. Now available on my etsy store (link in bio). What do you think? And what other designs would you like to see?

CAUTION MOTH P**N! So I have a couple of female emporer moths that have emerged so decided to put them outside to see if they could attract any local males. The males can smell a female upto a mile away and one has turned up. The males (more colourful and slightly smaller) actually are a day flying moth whilst the females fly at night. If they successfully breed I will return a few back to the wild next year after their winter diapause.

This stunning Elephant Hawk Moth (Deilephila elpenor) emerged from its winter sleep last night. Unfortunately a couple of months to early so I'm going to have to try an artificial food source.

The geodesic dome is made up of 6 pentagons, 10 hexagons and 5 half hexagons. 103 triangles in total, minus 2 for the door so should be 105. Each triangle side piece is cut at 3 different angles to make an easy fitting and each triangle can be individually taken out for repair if need be. And that's how you make a geodesic dome greenhouse in kit form hahaha.
