Luna Moth

When we were at the Farm for Easter, Claire (my niece) found a caterpillar under tree. When we went to pick it up, we saw there were two. So both the girls and my boys were able to take home a caterpillar.
It made a cocoon within just a couple of days
It came out this week. I must have just missed it, because the tail wings weren't even unfolded yet.
Here is our Luna moth about an hour later, all ready to leave. I let it go that night in the yard. Such a fun thing to do with the kids. They must have checked on it 10 times a day!
