I took care of the caterpillar which was about to be smashed by the gardener and fed it in a plastic container until it pupated and yesterday it emerged to become this beautiful moth. I have already released it into the wild last night. I still have 3 more which emerged this morning and their wings are starting to unfold slowly. I have documented its metamorphosis from caterpillar to chrysalis to adulthood. It was an experience like no other.
