So we ran out of Milkweed and had to go hunting for some more… at night, in the near dark… in a strange neighborhood because my mom had spied a plant while driving. Needless to say, it was an interesting experience, but our caterpillar was more than grateful to have some fresh leaves to feed on. Poor thing was so hungry. I love that they look like little typewriters when they eat. This is my first time using Windows Live Movie Maker to edit a video… was so easy and fun, I will have to play with it more often.

Our other caterpillar finally emerged and is lovely, but still stretching her new wings out.
