I guess a few of us would like to change something about our looks or face, but at the expense of not being able to eat for a whole day?
This caterpillar is getting ready to change skin. First his/her face will pop off and then it will be able to walk out of its old, rather tight skin. You can see the extra 'bump' on its head. That is the old face. The new one will be lighter in colour until its new skin is 'set'ready to be filled with more food!!!!
The green caterpillars grow at an alarming rate. The others, at the right of the second picture are about the same age.
I won't be able to post for a few days so there will be a big change in them all by the beginning of next week.
