Kittenpillar watch 2017



There were a few cold nights over the weekend, and then I didn't go out and check on Toby and found he was still there and still green.

Getting photos of Pickle was much harder. Since he attached himself to the top of a mason jar and the leaves went right up to the top, my camera had no idea what to focus on and I wasn't doing a great job of getting the right focal point manually..


I wasn't thrilled with the small opening and the leaves all being up in Pickle's space, not to mention the poop that accumulated at the bottom of the jar was starting to mold, so I moved the cover to a wider mouth jar. What I am going to do in a few days when hatching starts, I'm not sure. Anyone have any suggestions?

    1. pretty much as I was writing up this blog post. The name Toby just came into my head when I thought about the outdoor one, and I looked up caterpillar names for inspiration for Pickle.
