This unusual caterpillar wears its discarded heads as a very creepy hat
Five heads are better than one for the caterpillar that dons old skulls as the ultimate fashion statement.
check out these fancy caterpillars i saw today!
Trolls are butterflies
So one time I was thinking “why do trolls have butterfly wings when they reach god tier?” And then it dawned on me.
The grubs body kind of reminded me of a caterpillar, so maybe their troll forms are just cocoons before they turn into a butterfly (reach god tier).
Karkat and Kankri don’t have wings because of their blood mutation.
Summoner/Rufioh got his wings without reaching god tier.
Cherubs, the two-headed sneaks
Since Cherubs represent sneaks and sneaks are lizards and lizards are somewhat asocial, like by leaving their young ones to survive for themselves, knowing how to survive on their own even with a brain the size of a walnut.
This Google search said enough, and I don’t care if this has been already done
finally snuck a photo of one of the loopers munching on my bougainvillea… so cute! it hid in that little leaf pocket it made after i took this photo
Cinnabar-moth+cats_3636-6100 copy by Peter Warne-Epping Forest I have better pics of the moth but in the interests of authenticity this particular insect was snapped laying eggs on ragwort just 2 weeks ago. Time has passed and the eggs have hatched into these striped babies. They can decimate a ragwort population which are not well tolerated by cattle. So nature exerts its own control. https://flic.kr/p/2jgHfci
Its that time already 😭 see yall in 10-15 days
Look at my boneless children!!! (Not pictured: their four other siblings already pupating!!!)
June 11th Vs. June 29th!
A few caterpillars have fallen into my care. They were on the dill plant in the garden. I’m 90% sure they’re swallowtails. All I really know is they’re baby.
Yesterday was pretty wet, with the risk of lightning an added hazard in venturing outside….so I waited till well into the afternoon before heading out for a walk between the heavy showers.
A stunning rainbow framing East Lomond was worth it alone, but I also spotted a common blue butterfly at the edge of the path, really striking in the bright light. Until last week I’d not knowingly seen a common blue in this part of the Lomonds, so this odd year has seen yet another wildlife first for me.
Plenty of other butterflies around, like small heaths, and easy to get up close to as they were a bit lethargic after all the rain. A spiky caterpillar then crossed my path, looking more like medieval weaponry than the beautiful peacock butterfly it will soon become. And then, after hearing some distinctive and loud calls, I sat down on the wet grass and watched stonechats chatting, and whitethroats feeding their youngsters.
I was only out for an hour or so but the place was alive in the fleeting sunshine, with wildlife making the most of the respite. This year’s been amazing for wildlife, with lots of ‘firsts’ or unusual things encountered….like cuckoos, golden plover, common blue butterflies….. but as I’ve said before I do wonder if it’s because I’ve just been walking around with my eyes shut for the last ten years!
Welcome to my ASMR mukbang!

Hello Everyone! Today I will tell something that happened to me in real life
one day, my mom was CRAZY since something hapenned in the backyard.
So when i went to see what hapenned, i saw that some caterpillas eating my mother’s plants
At that moment, my mother grabbed one of those caterpillars with a piece of paper and threw it to the ground, and then crushed it with her foot.
Later, my mother gave me one of those caterpillars while she looked for more on the plants and told me to step on it.
I trampled And Crushed The Caterpillar, Causing horrible green liquid to come out of the paper.
It was really gross.
My herb garden is thriving!
I have lemon thyme, green onions, parsley, greek oregano, chives, rosemary, and sweet basil! The basil is being dramatic and wilty, but it should perk up, I watered it right before I took the picture. I also have three black swallowtail caterpillars in my parsley! They’ve been there for a couple days and are only eating the parsley, so I have adopted them and I will be leaving them there. I’m quite proud of them!
