We have MOTHS!

I was walking by the 'Bug Habitat' that has been housing 15 plus caterpillars since Easter, and I noticed movement.  Sure enough...some of those chrysallis' have opened up and hatched - surely that is not the right term, but that is what Sis says- some brown moths.  As soon as dad gets home fromthe doc, we will take it out and open it up to let them go.  It is actually pretty neat - I know you have all read the thing about the butterfly has to dry on its own so they can fly, well -- the cocoons turn into some gel looking stuff before the moths came out, there is one blob still in there ready to release a moth!
