About a week ago we found some Caterpillars in our dill plant. We awoke on Friday to find that our new friends were getting ready to take a long nap (or hibernation as Pooka told me). One had already gotten himself starting to be comfortable, the other was just starting. Sadly the first pictures we took didn't turn out as well due to the shape of the jar.

|Goodnight, have a good winter's nap.|
Pooka asked to make her writing debut today. I admit to helping her with the spelling, but she typed it and decided what to say.
The harder outside shell protects caterpillars because it keeps them safe and helps them turn into butterflies. I love my caterpillars.
