I've been thinking about blogging on this image for a while but haven't got the right angle yet. While I'm waiting for inspiration, I'd like to share it with you. It's a picture of the cocoons of a clouded footman moth (variously known as Anestia ombrophanes or Xanthodule fuscogrisea) taken in northern New South Wales by nature enthusiast and blog commenter Tapperboy. Those beautiful baskets are woven from silk and shed hair. Unweaving the rainbow? Pffft!
