The end of Insect Season.


We had many caterpillars this Summer. Not all of them were successful, but that is the interesting part of taking care of them and learning about them. This was a cocoon found on a tomato that we saved in a jar. The moth had some beautiful gold markings on it. While we were letting it go Zoe found a worm to hold. I love the picture of the worm. The body is transparent and shows the internal organs well.

Every year we collect potato bugs to watch over winter. We need to do that soon.
