What we have been up too..
We have been bug hunting. Hikes around the yard finding worms,millepedes, centipedes and other creepy slimy things and managed to find a Baltimore Checkerspot Caterpillar. He is in his pupa now and we are patiently waiting for his arrival. His pups is pale blue with orange and black markings. The caterpillar actually makes his pupa on the underside of leaves by making a wed and dangling from it. He started to do that but decided upon the edge of the ball jar. You can read about him here
Another good website for keeping caterpillars is here
Now we are off to go camping for the holiday. When I get back my plan is you catch you all up on everything in great detail. I pinky swear!
