I was filming in New Hampshire in Spring. This is when one of Nature's master artists was waking up - the leaf miner. She forms a beautiful sinuous pattern across a leaf as she devours it from the inside out. She grows bigger and bigger as she eats her way to the leaf edge, where she forms a cocoon, wrapping the leaf around herself. Eventually she emerges, and flies away as a little moth. #BBC #EarthOnLocation #Insect #LeafMiner #Spring #Artist
