Any idea what did this?

Here’s another mystery photo from my cousin in Ames, IA. When I looked at the photo, I couldn’t determine it’s size so couldn’t tell whether it was made by insect or bird. Dinah’s answer is: It was definitely an insect pupae about 1 or 1 1/2 inch long wrapped in an asparagus frond.
I’d very much appreciate it if you could help in any way.

This looks like a pupa, probably a Moth Pupa, and it looks nostalgically familiar. Our editorial staff seems to remember seeing this mystery thing in the fields in Ohio, but we need to do additional research. We are going to contact Eric Eaton to see if this looks familiar to him.
Thanks so much for your help. I know you go above and beyond for me and now you’re helping my wonderful Iowa cousins also!
