I've found an interesting thing today. Young caterpillars were sitting on leaves, and when I touched them, they fall. Under them I found the newborn green caterpillars of the same kind! Seems like big black ones were warming them! #caterpillars#microlife#insects#botanica#summertime
Bercermin dari proses metamorfosis ulat jadi kupu-kupu, ada arti kehidupan yang begitu indah yang bisa kita petik.
My kids are getting so big! These two are the same age but one was in more of a hurry to grow up. Almost there! Soon that one will be ready to pupate! 🐛 #swallowtails#caterpillars
Bird Needle felting Workshop Part Two, finished items. 4 Blue-tits, one Kingfisher and 2 caterpillars. All with their own personality and their own colour combinations. See a few posts back for what they were like in the first workshop session. Unfortunately the felter of the Robin couldn’t make it, and the goldcrest isn’t finished yet. I’m really pleased with what everyone made 💕
Bird making workshop Part Two, with the option of making caterpillars or butterflies for those who hadn’t done felting before. Five great birds and two caterpillars were finished, I’ll show more pictures in my next post. Some of the teenagers had had a very busy few weeks with exams. The Group Leaders already started felting before the teenagers arrived... This was at Ilkeston Methodist Church Youth Group and I did the workshop as part of Derbyshire Timeswap (it’s worth joining Timeswap if you live in Derbyshire, and I do believe they’re looking for more Timeswap Workshops at the Youth Group ...).
Manduca sexta caterpillars can be different shades of green and blue based on what they've been eating! The green caterpillar on the left has been eating Tomato leaves, and the blue one on the right has been eating the artificial food mix (sold on Carolina Biological supply). I've had lots of experience rearing this species because they were part of my experiment last year! These two larvae were being used for a biology class at UC Davis so I got the chance to take comparison photos. You can check out more photos under #manducasexta#tobaccohornworm 🐛
Estos son las orugas de Manduca sexta, una polilla esfinge. La oruga en la izquierda es verde porque él come la planta de tomate. La oruga en la derecha es azul porque él come la comida artificial de "Carolina Biological Supply." ¡Cuando las orugas comen comida diferente, se convierten en colores diferentes! Una clase de biología en mi Universidad está usando estas orugas para un lección, entonces yo podría tomar unas fotos de comparación. Corríjame si esto ^ es incorrecto. •
