Bug of the Week: Beginnings and Endings

This week a friend of mine asked me if I'd like some silkworms. She knew I was an experienced silkworm mom and she had received way too many from her order in the mail.

So, now we have tiny silkworm caterpillars to feed.

They are so adorable, how could I say no?

(See our previous posts about the silkworm life cycle and the history of silkworms.)

While picking leaves in the yard this morning for the silkworms, I found this giant swallowtail butterfly.

It's pretty bedraggled. What do you think happened to it?
