The Cocoon

 


I took this cutie a few weeks ago. I thought it was one single leaf left on a bare tree limb until the next time I noticed it, it was still hanging on for dear life! I went over to inspect it up close and personal only to find this cocoon. I loved the beautiful azure sky as the background. I was going to submit it as a Sky Watch Friday post, but decided to use it here for ABC Wednesday C is for... cocoon instead.

Yes, it works very well for a c word, and the blue sky just enhances the photo. I wonder what will emerge in the spring.

Neat catch! Glad you took a 2nd look.

Hi Janie! I like the word you used: "enhances". After I took the photo, the cocoon disappeared so I will never know what it was. I think someone saw me take the pic then took it. We do have a lot of escapees from the Butterfly center at Callaway Gardens. Thanks Neva and Paulie. Yes, I am glad I took a 2nd look esp since it is no longer there.

But what is it? It looks quite big - too big for a caterpillar!

Thanks, Carol. I believe it is the only cocoon I have see too. Yes, I agree... the sky IS beautiful. I am not sure what it is either, Jay. I zoomed in on it so that may have made it look even bigger. Sadly, it is no longer there so I will never know what it was.

What a beautiful find! What a shame it disappeared like that - you'll always wonder...
