Summer Surprise
Photographer: Michele Rice
Location: our house
We found the polyphemus caterpillar crossing our driveway the previous fall, immediately it made it's coccoon and we stored it on our front porch. I was about to give up hope on it hatching when I picked up it's container to clean it out, it had hatched on the first day of summer! What a beautiful surprise. It was sooooo big I couldn't believe it. Here it is on my son's shirt about to take flight.
