Our Moth

Last Fall, Mike and the kids discovered this fat caterpillar looking for a place to build a cocoon. We put him in an aquarium and hoped that he would make it through our long winter and hatch this Spring. While we were away in June, he finally hatched! Many thanks to our neighbor for taking pictures for us. We did get to see him when we returned. A very handsome Prometheus Moth. We were so happy that we got to see him and then we opened the aquarium and he flew away once it was dark.
