Meet Ms Higad . . .

Her other name is Danger.
She loves to walk around Heaven and each time I spot her, I shriek like a madwoman! I rush to her and nag her to bits: "Don't ever touch the hounds . . .Don't ever come near me . . . blah, blah, blah . . ."
And this is what Ms. Danger does when she sees me:
 
She curls in fright and in self-defense.
As if telling me: "Leave me alone too, Keeper-Nagger!"
 
And when I leave Ms Higad, she uncurls herself and go her merry way around Heaven again. So totally unnerving! But yesterday, I found her upside down on the archway looking smug and I tried to ignore her:
 
But when I got home from church, Ms. Danger has spun a cocoon around herself!
 
Ignorant me rushed to my sane sister Luchie asking what Ms. Higad is doing. Luchie rolled her eyes in exasperation (older sisters have great patience for the youngest and possibly the dumbest ;-) and told me in studied patience that what I am seeing is the transformation of a butterfly! Wow really, Luchie?!! All this time, my dreaded Ms. Higad is actually a butterfly in disguise! So now, I have to keep watch and document this important event. Now I wonder how long this cocoon will burst forth finally to a beautiful and harmless butterfly?

This is my Macro Monday story for all the kids in my art workshops in situ. As you can see, your teacher can also be dumb! This is also for Lisa's MacroMonday and Misty Dawn's CameraCritters!

Lovely, but I feel that I should warn you that your little Ms. Higad is going to transform into a moth rather than a butterfly!

A moth! Double YIKES! It's a good thing I don't have furs around Heaven! Oh, what was I thinking!

Thanks 'Don't Bug Me'

Ms.Higad looks all spiky so it's nice to know she's turning into a soft feathered moth!
