Time for another Caterpillar update. 


Firstly the High Brown fritillary caterpillars 

By Sunday evening we have two making silk hammock on the lid of their container. 

By Monday morning they were hanging downwards. I was privileged to see the first one form part of its pupae case. It was fascinating to see it swing round & round. I still do not know how it did not fall off. 

On Tuesday we have two pupae & by today I have others starting the process. 

I also have a second bunch of caterpillars, garden tiger Cana woolly bears ( moth), I have had these for around two weeks 

They are so furry, I can see why they are known as woolly bears.

  1. So cool. Great photos, you’ve done well keeping up with their progress. I look forward to seeing them ‘bloom’ into butterflies. 🙂
