Hello my lovely Quods!
Hope these photos brighten up your day

There were 2 now only one.
This beauty was wondering off so I decided to bring him in.

Not sure where he thinks hes going.
I dont have time to babysit.

If you look close you can see the white silk button. Hes working hard and will be hanging from a silk strand soon. Pretty amazing

Hes done for now. From here he will shed his skin for the last time. The crystal will than form.

2 of the 3 I brought in the other day just shed and formed cocoon. I was chatting with a friend and missed it. Last one has made its way up to spin its silk. Photos arent great, cant disturb as they are fragile when first formed. After the last one goes into cocoon just wait. they survive and emerge.

Update on cocoons
First photo caterpillar first brought in. Looks like it will emerge soon. The darker it gets the closer to emerging.
The 3 others I brought in one didnt survive. Just beginning to darken. Last photo is blurry. Best I could do without disturbing too much.

Exciting!! Just emerged.
I will release it soon. 2 to go.

Just happened.
The third might be happening soon since they both went into their cocoons on the same day.

This one is just about ready. Holding up my day.
Last one.

Born to be alive!
