Caterpillar Rescue Update
Nov 24 All the Dirt on Gardening entry
I showed the butterfly box where we put a tiny swallowtail caterpillar rescued before the first hard freeze.
These photos show its progress toward butterfly adulthood -
It grew to about 8 times the size it was on Nov 24
An grew fatter, too.
Yesterday I watched as the caterpillar wriggled toward the next stage
and this morning when I checked it had completed the process to chrysalis.
