Look what the boys found outside Sunday afternoon!
Though my son found it, it was spotted in a neighbor boy’s yard. After a brief fairness conference, it was determined the friend would raise him, so he carried him home in one of my glass jars. The boys were so cute, working out caterpillar ownership. I rather wanted to release him since these types of caterpillars and moths don’t do much garden harm, and feast mostly on weeds, but I was overruled.
Ah well, kind of makes me want to order some butterfly eggs or kits. Have you ever raised butterflies (or moths)?
