Yesterday our Sputnik caterpillar hatched!
I found this huge green caterpillar last summer and brought him indoors. His home became a jar filled with grass and leaves from our yard. He seemed to like lilac leaves the best. He ate alot! Before we knew it, he spun into a cocoon.
I researched caterpillars to learn a little bit about them. Don't remember what kind he even is right now; that was a long time ago! He sat on our cupboard for weeks. Finally, as the weather started to get cooler, I put his jar in an unzippered bag and put him in the vegetable bin in our refrigerator. Yep; you read correctly; right next to the carrots and apples all winter long.
Over a month ago; maybe two, I took him out and set him back on the cupboard. This past week, I began wondering if something went wrong and he may have died. I seriously considered "cleaning out" the jar.* So glad I didn't because walking past the jar yesterday I noticed a strange color out the corner of my eye. Sputnik was transformed! His wings were so big, that I was afraid he'd hurt himself, so then I had to empty my gigantic yarn jar and make him a temporary home in it, til he got more used to his gigantic new wings. ~ Later this afternoon, he was set freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I can't tell you how incredible it was!
God's just awesome yall!
God is SOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
