All Change

Two days ago, the little Swallowtail caterpillar looked like bird droppings … but now it has it’s ‘Second Coat’  which it will wear until it has fattened up and then pupates.

I brought the lemon tree seedling inside and it sits on my desk. I’ll  soon confine the caterpillar to a large enclosed plastic bottle to ensure its safety from potential predators.

Within a few weeks we should see another brand new butterfly!

Ark.
