Same as butterflies, of course - metamorphosing from egg, to caterpillar, to (often) fabulous adult.
On the Garston Wood Field trip earlier this summer, I spotted what looked almost like a white fungus on a hazel leaf, I think. Peter Shallcross though, who 'breeds' moths, instantly suggested it was Buff tip moth eggs - go to Recording/Active surveys to see what one looks like.
Then, Debbie Carter spotted this amazing caterpillar 'ambling across our back yard.' (Hawkmoth caterpillars always have that spike on their tail.)
So look where you're walking!
