And here on Saturday:
That's a nylon stocking at the top of the jar. I had the jar lid, with holes drilled in it, on for a while, but the sides of the jar got fogged up, and I was afraid it was too moist and things might get moldy, so I did the stocking thing. It took care of the moisture problem, plus now I can see him from the top, too, through the nylon.
Here are the close-ups, for you caterpillar lovers (are there any of you out there? heehee). Wednesday:
Just look at how much of that jar he takes up now! I'm wondering if I'm going to have to make him a bigger home. I didn't know he'd get that big. The moths really aren't so very big.
I'm thinking I should've left him in the garden, to clean up the purslane without my having to pick it for him! Ha! Actually, what I'm really thinking is: What would've happened to him if I hadn't brought him inside? I can't imagine him surviving out there.
