By our best guess, our pet caterpillars should be emerging from their week-long sleep any time now.  We’ve got a webcam set up to catch the action if we’re not around.  I can’t figure out how to share the webcam live onine, but I’ll post pictures occasionally as things change.

Here’s Wormy:

Waiting for the butterflies to emerge...

Click the picture for a closer view.

We have two glass containers, each with two cocoons.  In the one the camera is on, the second cocoon fell so it’s on the grass.  I’m not sure if that lessens its chance of survival or not.  But the one that’s hanging seems the closest to emerge of all four.  The camera doesn’t pick up enough detail, but the cocoon looks ready to burst, and bright oranges and yellows are showing through.
