Caterpillar update

I went out to the patio this morning to see how much of my parsley was left.



I couldn't believe how much they ate overnight!



They seem to be multiplying.



I'm actually enjoying the little guys, just watching them chomping away. They eat pretty fast.
And there's a beauty to them. Look at those colors, and the pattern.



I've decided not to disturb them. They can eat as much as they want. I will plant more parsley next year.

Wow, those little guys are really going to town.

They are rather pretty, almost like they have been painted.

I think I'd better go check out my parsley plants.

Have a great day,
Kim

You are so kind. I love all the little creatures too. Oh, except for snails and slugs. And flies.

No wonder that look like fat little caterpillars...they are being fed so well. Glad you are enjoying the tiny critters. They sure are pretty. They will be even more beautiful as butterflies.

I hope your caterpillaers are ready to turn into beautiful butterflies!
