*Currently waiting for:

moth pupa in soil
This is the pupa of this caterpillar that I collected last fall from the arboretum. I have accidently let the soil get very dry. I hope the developing moth is still OK.

moth pupa in silk cocoon
I found this cocoon very loosely attached to some tall grass last week. I tried to pull up the grass stalk to carry it home, but the cocoon fell right off. I took it home anyway.

mantid egg case
The egg case of praying mantis S. limbata. If this weather keeps up, it might hatch in a few weeks!



*among other things
