Safe sibling snugglers

The caterpillars are now down to nine ... they have moved up from the flower buds at the end of the leaf (which were thoroughly munched through) and up to the next leaf. They have grown quite a lot over night ... and as the rain came down they all made small piles of green excrement (the size of pearl barley or pudding rice grains) then crawled to safety on the underside of the same leaf sheltering from the wet.

Such an amazing life for those caterpillars. What you do takes lots of patience.

Cool pictures. What kind of flowers are those? Hollyhocks or Nasturtiums (sp?)? I have a bunch in my backyard, which I thought were Hollyhocks, but everyone tells me differently.

I counted over twenty on my nasturtiums this morning. Last week I put about a hundred of them in my compost heap with their half eaten leaves. The little blighters are devastating my flower bed.
