what are they?
From giant green caterpillar..to giant grey moths!

These caterpillars turned into cocoons last August, we kept them out in the garden shed all winter, below zero temps and all, and they finally today turned into moths! (we thought maybe they died from too much handling, trips to school for show and tell..but they are fine! We will release them tonight.) Some photos are blurry but has my fingers in it for scale to show how big these guys are!

Hi LaRae,
What a marvelous documentation of the metamorphosis of two Polyphemus Moths.
