Ella - Reared Elephant Hawk Moth

Ella - Reared Elephant Hawk Moth
Some folks may recall us finding a pupa of a moth in the beginning of April (Large Pupa) So we brought it home due to its unfortunate location in a wet muddy footpath and raised her.

We've kept her in dirt in a bug house with wire mesh sides, lightly misted her about every 2 - 3 days and in a cool dark room and she finally emerged today :D

I really feel privileged to have been a part of this process with her.
