Bringing its A game to this year’s Easter festivities is…

the Automeris larra caterpillar, from South America!

This one gets all the Easter colors in one festive package…and isn’t afraid of showing it off.

Later, it brings it down a notch, changing from an eye-popping caterpillar to ride out the Spring as a simply  stunning moth. Well done, Automeris larra!

Today is the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning it’s the first day of spring.

Look around. Everything’s bursting into color. Oh, and the flowers are coming up, too!

Game making

Ten years or so ago, when he and his brother were kids, reddit user one23abc didn’t have the means to afford expensive card games like Yu-Gi-Oh! or Pokémon. What do do? Invent their own card deck for strategic game play, of course! All it took was paper, markers, creativity, and a whole lot of time. The result? Creature Cards!

There are three types of cards—Creature, Evolution, and Item. Each player starts the game with three Creatures, one Evolution, and one Item.

Special powers and various strengths are involved with each original character, and the game provides hours of free entertainment. Oh, and Creature Cards came with something extra—all the fun of thinking it up and making it happen. Nothing is out of reach with an imagination!
