This is a caterpillar I found on the edge of the kitchen sink yesterday. I put it back on a leaf and when I woke up this morning it has eaten 5 leaves and a bit on its own! What a greedy caterpillar!! (like me!) I hope you eat a lot more. Whatever you're gonna be, your life will be a lot more fun when flying.
We used to have a kind of swallowtail every summer in a tree in our garden in Japan. And I used to observe them until they became butterflies, which was always my summer homework for school. Their caterpillar get as big as a finger and it was always lovely to see them in a variety of size crawling around. The tree doesn't exist any more but I hope they found a nice home.
