Caterpillar update

Yesterday I walked outside to the beautiful area outside my office for a minute of quiet. I looked up to notice the caterpillars. And there they were, more, more and more climbing up to hitch themselves to a spot under the eves.

So this morning I brought my camera to capture one or two. I thought we'd gone from the original 26 to about 40. I started counting, and stopped at 140. They've gone all the way around the building.

Can you imagine?
Hundreds of butterflies.
Right here.
In front of me.

So cool! I can't even imagine how amazing it's going to be to see them all cocooned and then to wait for them to transform into glorious butterflies. It's going to be a wondrous sight! You must must must take a photo!
