A few days ago, I showed you this picture of a yellow, fuzzy critter, that reminded me somewhat of Heimlich, from “A Bug’s Life”. This was a partially metamorphosed (thank you spell check!) moth that was seen crawling through the yard at dusk and was able to attach to a pine needle. Notice the nubs it has for wings.
I went out the next morning to see if it was still in the tree. It was no more than 14 hours later. I really didn’t expect to find it, but I did. I was amazed at the transformation that happened literally over night. Check it out!
It would’ve been great to have seen a time lapse of this overnight transformation. Maybe if I would’ve paid more attention in my Biology classes in high school this fast growth wouldn’t have amazed me so much.
