Adventures in Reading!
This is Bubba's cocoon after he hatched. If you look closely you can see juice from his wet wings.
No wonder why his name is Bubba! He's huge!
This is the class trying to figure out what kind of moth Bubba is.
He looks like a tarantula with wings!
He has feathers for antennas.
The class took Bubba it to the courtyard, so he could dry his wings out.
Who knew that moths had furry wings?
We think he's a Polyphemus moth!
Doesn't he look so much like a leaf?
Look how detailed Bubba's wings are.
WOW, look how big his abdomen is!
Look at how much Bubba blends in with his surroundings.
He's just so beautiful.
Here our class takes a picture with Bubba to help us remember our day!!!
The proud "parents" who brought Bubba to class... without telling Mrs. Perry! Boy was she surprised when Bubba made his debut.
Bubba is almost done drying out his wings!
I've never seen such a gigantic moth! It took Bubba over 3 hours to dry. During that time he didn't flap his wings at all. We don't know the exact time he left the courtyard.
