Caterpillar Cocoon Watch

Yay! I have been trying to find where my swallowtail caterpillars go, when they go into the chrysalis stage.  Luckily, I walked out onto the patio with my son, as he was getting ready to go mow a lawn.  I happened to look down at the trash can, right before he went to load it up in his pickup.  He is not very happy with me, as I wouldn’t let him take the trash can.  But, he can get over it.

Then, just inches away from this one, I saw this!

The axe is not usually out on the patio, but aforementioned son had it out one day last week, and failed to put it back in the shed.  It will be fun to get to watch the whole process, for once. Stay tuned for updates!
