Just a note: apparently caterpillars are not the best documented, so it's pretty hard to ID from pictures just of caterpillars!
Oh, and did I mention we saw some eggs on the fennel, too? They hatched!! But only one survived... out of two we saw...
The next day: June 22
Meanwhile, on the same day, here's what the other one now looked like:
Days went by, and then on July 3rd, I find this (just before 9 am)!!
I made a preliminary plan, found the wood I wanted out of the discard stash in the garage, and hubby dropped off power tools... what was he thinking?!?!? ;)
I also found what I think is an egg just about to hatch, producing one more!
Thank goodness we have a nice, roomy box now for them - they can really eat a lot once they get bigger, and I"ll have to pack it out with fennel to keep them all fed!
