Attacus Atlas, Part II

So, they came to our house in February. Following the instruction we stored the pupae in the refrigerator until April. Then they were place in a special corner, we cared for a proper humidity and temperature. And waited. Waited. Waited... The spring ended. We still waited... The summer was almost gone, and finally, in the very end of August two of them came out. Finally!

So.... Here it is - a beautiful female. Though her wings have not spread enough, she is so impressive!
These wonderful creatures are so fragile... And so huge... And so beautiful! Even with broken wings. Don't you think so?
