A Stargazer Moth
We are not seeing the whole metamorphosis of this moth. We did not see the egg stage or the larvae stage, the five fivestar stages, but let’s pretend by saying that this lovely butterfly has finally molted, cocooned and spread her wings. We don’t know about the chrysalis because these are flowers silly and we can’t write a children’s book either. Re-education of the process comes from a lovely little website, Butterfly School: Metamorphosis http://www.butterflyschool.org/new/meta.html a division of the Missouri Botanical Garden.
