The Beauty Of Complete Metamorphosis Analysis

Good Essays
The Beauty of Complete Metamorphosis It was a warm day in early October. A young boy at the age of 11 with pale skin and freckles was frolicking in his neighborhood park about a block away from his house. He wore his favorite pair of blue jean overalls with a yellow and olive striped shirt underneath. He loved being outside and spent most of his time at his neighborhood park. His normal routine after he got off the bus from school was to go home, eat a snack of some sort, change into his play clothes and head outside to adventure. He loved observing all the flowers, trees and insects he could find. His favorite thing to do was to pick a new type of flower each day and take it home every night to give to his mom. He liked to observe all the …show more content…
It grew bored after several weeks because its only friend had isolated itself into a cocoon and it had no one to talk to anymore. After almost a month the preying mantis had grown almost twice its size from when it first entered the fish bowl. There was no longer any soil, leaves, or vegetation. There was no longer any water for it to drink. It couldn’t go more than a few days without water. It seems as if the boy had forgotten all about the insects he had captured and placed in his closet to die. It seems as if he thought just because he had the insects close to him he didn’t have to be sad that he was unable to go outside to be with them. He didn’t understand that it was hard for them to survive without the proper elements in their environment. It was early December when he entered his closet and acknowledged the fish bowl for the first time since he has placed it there. He noticed there was no movement going on and it was emptier than the last time he remembered seeing it. As soon as he had realized what he had done to the poor animals, he grew very sad and didn’t know what to do. He began crying and was full of guilt since it was his responsibility these insects had died. Little did he know the bright green caterpillar was still in its …show more content…
He began to have hope that his tiny green friend may be still alive and living in its cocoon before he can become a moth. He was very excited to go home and see if this was the case. All day at school he shared the story of how he had a caterpillar at home and he was keeping it until it reached its final life stage and could fly in the spring. As soon as he got home that day from school he rushed over to his room so he could observe the fish bowl in his closet. He gently moved some of the leftover plants and sure enough, on a small twig towards the bottom, was a greyish brown colored cocoon. He knew he needed to move the cocoon outside so that as soon as his friend was ready to become a moth it could fly away and live its life. He carried the fish bowl throughout his house very slowly and carefully. He opened the back door and placed the fish bowl on the grass a few feet away from the door. He went back into his house with a huge smile on his face and was happy he could do the right thing. It amazed him that such a small egg could become such an interesting looking creature such as the caterpillar. He learned that caterpillars had chewing mouthparts and mostly fed on leaves. It was fascinating to him that they could form a

    From smelling the salty waters by the Florida Keys, seeing all of the green from the stems of green beans growing, the flavor of the freshest eggs you could get from the coop in the backyard, to the avocado tree growing in the backyard, my trip to Florida had become one of the greatest life experiences I’ve had yet. Visiting Florida taught me many skills on being independent, mentally, and how easy and fun it is just to be to yourself sometimes. It all started Christmas eve when I got home to find my presents from “Santa” there before we even went to bed. My parents had planned on taking a vacation to Florida for Christmas break to see my grandparents, but we were unable to also get my parents there. Instead, I went alone and, on Christmas…

    However, I took this advice a little too seriously. I was always a rule follower, but sometimes my intense precautions got me into trouble. It was a gorgeous day: the sun was blazing, the birds were cheerfully chirping and of course, I was sitting on the couch watching The Little Mermaid for the fifth time that week. Meanwhile, my dad was away on a business trip and wouldn’t be home until the following day; my mom was outside doing yardwork. I was sprawled out on the couch, soaking in the cool air-conditioned breeze, singing along with Ariel to the lyrics I knew by heart and eating my second bowl of Lucky Charms.…
