C A T E R P I L L A R S ~ Awesome Critters !




CATERPILLARS ~ always hairy always nice

AND they're  never scary ~ and they never bite

THEY love to live on a cabbage leaf ~ they

EAT & EAT beyond belief ! They

REALLY  eat a cabbage leaf a day

PERFECT food for them OK !

I'D LOVE to be a caterpillar

LOVIN' cabbage ~ such an insect filler ! ~ One

    Great one Brian but some caterpillars do bite and some have hairy poisonous bristles or whiskers or whatever they call them. Looking forward to seeing the first Brimstone - should be about quite soon - mid- march last year.


      YES ~ Poetic licence I guess ! Butterflies know when to merge and are good seasonal indicators ! Thanks BRIAN

      I am more familiar with the heavy equipment type but this was nice Brian.

        THANKS WILLY ~ I guess you also have BUGS in OZ ! BRIAN

        What a wonderful write. They teach the preschoolers about the lifecycle of a butterfly here. Very interesting. At any age! Hugs-Christina

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Yesit is a wonderful SUBJECT and something even Preschoolers can observe in Practice ~ from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. We use the Cabbage White because the caterpillars and the butterflies are very user friendly ! Hugs & Butterfly kisses ~ BRIAN

          Good write but even some of the UK caterpillars are a bit dangerous.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks FRIEND ~ Thanks for your comment ! We use Cabbage Whites to teach Children and Teens about the Life Cycle because they are harmless. We do also teach "Health & Safety" in the Countryside ~ yours BRIAN

            I prefer my cabbage without holes but I am willing to share. Just say a beautiful Monarch yesterday. Nice.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Well never forget that the land outside of our Concrete Jungles belongs to Nature' W have an allotment at College and I do grow my raspberries and other soft fruit ~ in a cage ~ to deter the Birds. However I plant my cabbages in the open and share a few "outside " leaves with the caterpillars ~ because I am invading their habitat ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN
