Time Of Transformation

The worm, after spinning its cocoon, soon changes to a chrysalis, and

remains inactive for several days, when it makes an opening in one end

and crawls out. The time taken for this transformation is also governed

by the temperature, although I think but few ever pass the winter in

this state. It is a rare thing to find a moth before the end of May,

and not many till the middle of June; but after this time they are more

numerous till the end of the season.
