The other night--maybe two weeks ago now--I noticed what looked like a leaf hanging over the door in the living room.
A few nights later, I noticed it was not a leaf, but a cocoon.
Then, the next day, it had moved from above the door to the middle of the ceiling.When we came home that afternoon, it had disappeared.
I'm not sure if Mary or Ayub knocked it down, or if it moved through chrysalis-stage at rapid speed. Either way, I was really excited to show you these pictures.
THEN, today, in town we saw this giant bird.
Here's the tree in the median.Can you see the bird on top? It's huge!Here's the bird.It was giant...and preening itself...but when I went to take a picture, it looked right at me...and it's face looked like it had third-degree burns all over it...Seriously, it was so cool.
