Creepy crawlies for real!
How coincidental is this…
Just a couple of days after we do C for Caterpillar, DH’s mum brings in these real caterpillars she caught from the garden, eating the leaves of her prized plants!
Eeeeeeeee!! This is the first time I’ve ever observed caterpillars THIS up close! They send shivers down my spine, but DS (as with most boys, I figure) thinks they are really cute.
* SHUDDER * !
They’re in a corner of our kitchen now, crunching through leaves like there’s no tomorrow (and defecating at that rate as well, bleagh…) and we’re wondering if we’ll get a chance to see them spin into a cocoon and emerge as butterflies!
