My lovely neighbour planted a swan plant and encouraged a brood of monarch caterpillars to make a home there. We’ve been watching them for a few weeks munching away and have both enjoyed taking images of their antics. A couple of them have formed into pupae and this one pictured is quite advanced – you can see the monarch colours through the green skin of the chrysalis : – -) We’re thinking it may hatch out soon.
… and this caterpillar can’t seem to stop eating – I think the hungrier they get – the closer they may be to turning into pupa! I love watching these fascinating creatures : – )
Thanks for visiting : – )
