The Unthinking Caterpillar


The Unthinking Caterpillar

No no no no no!
My car is NOT a good place to make your chrysalis!

I can't go anywhere until it's transformed. Then I might use some tweezers and move it somewhere safer. Still thinking about what to attach it with... glue?

I've had to transfer most of our population of caterpillars to the school swan plants because they've run out of leaves on ours.

  7. How inconsiderate?!?!? Yes, we have moved them, have used a spring clothes peg to hang it, as long as it can hang so that it can get out it'll be fine.

  9. So, what did you end up doing? I hope you were able to transfer him to a plant.

    What was he expecting to eat when he turned into a butterfly?

  11. Poor caterpillar! The photo is beautiful though. It took me awhile to even realize that it was on a wheel. FYI--we've made commenting on http://greenbabyguide.com vastly easier than it was in the past. It's just in time for the Shaklee giveaway we're hosting. Comments have to be in by Tuesday so come on by!
