No wonder the stages have such icky names (larva, pupa, etc) - they go with the appearance. But how exciting to think you'll end up with a beautiful butterfly or moth. :)
Hahaha--I never thought of that about the names, but you are right!
That must of been a cool sight! I have not seen one up close yet.When I see a sighting like this I always think that it is a "sign" or a special meaning for somethinggoing on in my life at the moment.Do you do silly things like that?
