Shot this empty shell about a week ago, but we couldn&#039;t determine which of the lil&#039; caterpillars belonged to it.<br />
To make up for that I&#039;ll upload another egg with resulting caterpillar a few hours old.<br />

  1. Thanks, friend! Really do love this series, alienesque, artful, mysterious. Posted one month ago
    1. Happy to oblige sir! ;o) And yes, the purple haze is a special touch - unusual place for an egg, mostly we find them on the stems of the host plant. Mom must have been stressed out or some such ... Posted one month ago
  2. Wow. This is so dramatic and wonderful. I love the title too! Posted one month ago
