This post should be titled: “The Things I Will Do To Get a Picture”, because the minute my daughter brought this awesome little fellow to my attention, I was smitten. I know! Weird isn’t it, a girl who loves big fat gooey green caterpillars.
To get this picture I was on my tummy about inches from him…now that is a picture in itself.
Riley ran to get my camera, Jake ran to get the empty terrarium that I wanted to toss several weeks ago, thank goodness I didn’t. After I got gravel impressions all over my tummy and knees for these great pics…Jake scooped him up and placed him in a lush habitat, in the terrarium that is. I just wanted to look at him awhile longer, then I had plans to take him to a wooded area and let him go.
This was Sunday…
Monday morning I go out to look at him….get him ready for his woodsy adventure and he was gone! Or so I thought. But upon closer inspection, I believe this little guy began preparation for his big change.
So now we wait. I think it’s safe to say that this story will have to be continued at a later date.
Anyone know how long?
I wonder what he will turn into….
What is your best guess?
