This morning we came downstairs to find our second caterpillar ready to become a pupa..
Small Tortoiseshell Larva - Hanging from a Twig
Unfortunately we had to go out and by the time we came home he looked like this..
Small Tortoiseshell Pupa 2
He would have been in a perfect position for filming the transition too, but never mind next time......well next time we get some caterpillars as we have just noticed that number 3 is in position now, but he is buried under lots of leaves. Hopefully Max the moth will be more obliging when it's his turn.
