  1. Awesome shot! Are you rearing this? Posted 3 years ago
    1. Thanks Christine :o) No, not rearing it - it is sitting on the wall next to my front door, so maybe I'll take more shots while it's maturing or when I happen to see it's eclosure, but that's a long shot ... Posted 3 years ago
      1. Oh, that's so cool that you just found it there. I rarely find pupae in nature. Posted 3 years ago
