In an earlier log today I showed a large Caterpillar.
This one to be exact.
Well tonight it has started it's metamorphosis.
It is spinning it's cocoon.
Hard to get a real close up that is clear, but you can see the start of the spinning.
I place him in a larger plastic container. I wanted it to have enough room when it comes out.
I will take a few more pictures and then print them out for my grand daughter for show and tell.
To think this guy almost got discarded with the rest of the old plants and most likely would not have survived. So, I need to make this a learning project for the young kids.
