Yesterday afternoon my largest caterpillar made it’s way to the top of the cage….spun a web and anchored it’s hind feet to the top.
A few hours later it dropped into the “J” position….and remained that way all night.
By mid day it looked as if it was getting a bit fatter…you can see that even it’s feet look fat……every now and then there would be a little movement.
But within an hour it will harden into a protective shell.
In 9-14 days I will have hatched my first Monarch Butterfly.
Watch the gyrations as it shed’s it’s skin and the pupa emerges..
