dsc01257.jpgThis is Little Joe who isn’t so little anymore.  He/she started life in our home as an egg about the size of the top of a pin.  The little guy/gal is now about four centimetres long and still happily munching away on his/her favourite meal in the world – fresh milkweed.  I keep thinking that this caterpillar can’t possible grow any bigger.  Sooner or later instinct has to kick in and Little Joe will travel to the top of his/her container home and start the process of transformation.  Go, Little Joe, go!  Your fans are waiting!
