Pipe Vine Swallow Tail Butterfly, fresh out of the coccoon #homeschoolhighlights

This was really cool! Mommy found the this gorgeous red catelpillar a couple weeks ago at work. She brought it home, in hopes of showing the colorful thing to the kids in the morning. Alas, little caterpillar decided, it was that time, that night, and when Mommy got up in the morning to show the kids, it had already cocooned.

So, we set the jar aside and waited, and the other night we got lucky, and caught the payoff. we didn’t get to see it emerge, at least on camera… but we caught the expansion, and the growth, the wings drying out and forming, right before our eyes.https://youtu.be/kYUBGg6uik4
