However.....he came in a couple of days ago holding one of these......
that's a hungry little caterpillar....okay...there are GOBS of them....a hungry group!!! They must think they are at a Las Vegas buffet the way they are gorging themselves!!!
But, I guess it takes a lot of energy to go from a little black caterpillar to a pipevine swallowtail butterfly.
We had a discussion about whether to spray the vine and get rid of the caterpillars and save the vine, but decided to just let them chow down and pray that we have gobs of beautiful butterflies later on in the season. Score one for beauty!
Go forth and be creative,
