katina the caterpillar

In Greek, Katina means "pure". Appropriate name for a butterfly, wouldn't you say?
"Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:3
I believe what we have in our little bug jar is a black swallowtail caterpillar, which will emerge (if she lives long enough the way Ilsa loves to shake the jar around -- to Ingrid's chagrine) to be a beautiful black and cobalt blue butterfly.

That is cool. I hope you get to see the entire process.

I hope your girls enjoy watching the metamorphosis. I remember when we were kids, my brothers, sisters and I caught a green caterpillar. It formed a cocoon in the jar and we hatched a beautiful Luna Moth!
