Black Yellow Black comes out of the cocoon!

Do you remember a few months ago when O Boy captured/rescued a wooly bear caterpillar and named him Black Yellow Black? We were surprised when he began making a cocoon a few days after taking up residence in our bug box. You can read about his discovery and see pictures of his cocoon building here. Well, the other day I was working at my desk and looked over to see this:

Black Yellow Black has come out of the cocoon.
It's a bit of an inopportune time though; for we have about 20 inches of snow on the ground! I guess our warm house made his internal clock think it was a bit later in the year than it actually is.
