I spy with my little eye...

Can you see it?







This chrysalis was found by Abbi on a walk around the house. At first we thought it was poop. Mark immediately told her to put it down. When she did, it started bouncing around. After looking closer at it, we realized what it was. The kids begged to keep. We agreed to keep it just long enough to see it open up. We kept it in a glass jar and watched it for a couple of days. Then, one morning it began to shake. I ran and woke up the kids. The "thing" had already dropped out but it had not blown up it's wings yet. We took it outside, put it on the bush and checked on it regularly throughout the day. When all was said and done, we had "hatched" a moth.
