A mystery pod
May 10, 2015


I found this mysterious looking pod while gardening and put it into a bug box for my daughter to hatch.  I assumed it was from a praying mantis since our yard usually has several every summer.

We put the box under a shady bush and went out for lunch.  When we returned, there was a beautiful luna moth clinging to the underside of the box cover!  It was such a fantastic surprise for me because I hadn't seen one of these since I was a kid.  

We let it go and it disappeared into the hostas to wait for nightfall and the start of it's week-long search for love : )
