a particular day

April 17, 2007

of the order Lepidoptera

Fresh from the cocoon

I would like to remember yesterday for being audience to a (very) excited four year-old, sharing a moth that just emerged from the butterfly incubator.


But history and memory won't shake the sadness and loss that surrounded that day.

Um, I may have to re-think this whole "Moving to Cincinnati" thing. That thing looks more scary than Katrina... : )

Technically JP, it's called a butterfly garden. Took 6 months for this fella to emerge.

That's really beautiful. Did you come across it by chance? Or were you being literal when you said it cam from an incubator?

I personally think the moth is beautiful.

I'm still really depressed about the whole shooting...

That picture is going to give me nightmares. The bug is HUGE.
