This morning while making my usual milkweed check I did come across 3 more tiny caterpillars. Like I have said before it's not my desire to 'save them all'. So for now, there is a total of 12...and no egg from yesterdays find. ):
I did experience something pretty special. Remember me talking about molting and how the cat grows but its skin does not? Well, I was moving one of the latest cat to fresh leaves. While in my hand (yes, that is my palm) IT went through a MOLT! See it's face cap below and the 'old skin' right next to the caterpillar. So small that I could not even feel it as he starting crawling away. Definably a New To Me experience.
