While the last two caterpillars of the Swallowtail will transform into a chrysalis soon, I discovered some new caterpillars. It wasn’t difficult to find them as I was wondering where my Kale plants were gone.....a few weeks ago I received them as a present for my vegetable garden with beautiful green leaves.
It’s a kind of relief seeing that the larval stages of butterflies preferring my vegetables but I’m afraid that having my own big vegetable garden in France one day will be a challenge as I’m not able to kill caterpillars.
These are caterpillars of the Small White in the 2nd caterpillar stage and measures about 1 cm….except the newborn caterpillar.

Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
