yesterday i had noticed a large caterpillar hanging on the front of our house. i assumed it was caught in a spider web, and i marveled at how it managed to get that high to get caught in the first place. today i walked by and saw this . . .
it's a cocoon!
i was tickled. and it's so pretty. it has these gold specs on it (you can see them in the photo - those aren't reflections of light). i could not wait to show the little girl when she got out of school. she was equally tickled.
she went out to play with her friend, and not 5 minutes later she runs through the door yelling "come look!"
a friend of his must have come to visit!
the first caterpillar was all greens when i saw him, but this second guy is just as big. perhaps later i will have another cocoon to show you.
that is all.
