More caterpillars--Elizabeth Smith

More caterpillars, originally uploaded by Elizabeth Smith.

The butterflies have been busy laying eggs, and these caterpillars have been eating and growing like crazy. There seem to be a lot of these Gulf Fritillary caterpillars this year; some years there are hardly any.

I'm still waiting for the earlier chrysalis I sketched, hopefully the butterfly will emerge soon.
