Caterpillars and Cocoons

October 13, 2009

The garden fairy and I have been enjoying the fall weather and scenery. The caterpillars in the bug jar have made cocoons and a couple of new caterpillars have been added. I relocated the jar to the shed after reading that they stay in the cocoons through the winter and emerge as moths in spring. Being too warm would interfere with their natural cycle. It’s interesting to see the cocoons seem to match their creators.
