Just when I’d nearly given up (it had been around 10/11 days), Carlos the caterpillar emerged from his cocoon as a beautiful, brightly coloured…moth! Well…not so beautifully coloured…more of a brown. ‘He’ still looked great, though. I’ve renamed him Marvin.
He’s a bit ungrateful, though. After sitting there for a couple of hours warming up, no doubt, he flew up to the strip light; where he remained for the rest of the evening. The next morning he’d gone! The nerve of the moth!
Be happy, be safe.
