Bug update

The caterpillar is starting to enter the larva stage. He's still hanging in there on my garage door.

Weird Bug

This deserves to go on both blogs. I have no idea what this thing is. It was on my garage door yesterday evening. If anyone knows what this is, please post it in the comments.

UPDATE: The folks at the University of Kentucky Department of Entomology say it's a Spicebush Swallowtail (Papilio Troilus) and pointed me to this page. This caterpillar is usually bright green but turns yellow for only a few days before it pupates. Its false eyespots and other markings help protect it by making it look like a small snake to predators (especially when it is green).

Slow Posting

I haven't been posting much on here lately, because most of the posts have been over at my other blog that I'm trying to update every day. (Or at least take a photo every day and post them whenever I get a chance).
