Anyway, as I ventured out into my garden yesterday, I saw another "picture perfect" opportunity. I saw this caterpillar starting to form a cocoon around itself. It was moving ever so slowly as it formed threads around itself. It was my first time to see such an event so I excitedly took several shots again.
You can still see the bristles of the caterpillar and even its orange head is still evident. However, it is now enclosed in some silvery threads that definitely show the beginning of a cocoon. Isn't this exciting?
