Today's Making Monday is a little different. Its not about something I've made. Its about something I'm watching being made.
So I happen to look up at my window (I'm in my craftroom) and see a little something waving at me.
So after a little google, I found out that the caterpillar is trying to find somewhere safe to make his cocoon! And they like to climb up walls and make cocoons under window ledges and things. After all, when you've turned into a butterfly, the first thing you want to do is try out those wings right?
I then looked up, trying to see where this little guy is trying to get to. And someone has already beaten him to it:
But what really fascinated me about this little caterpillar, wasn't that he was climbing so high, but how he was trying to climb up the glass.
He was weaving this little sticky thread across the glass, in a circular fashion, so that his tiny little legs had something to grab on to. He was BUILDING HIS OWN LADDER!!!!!
I mean, come on, thats pretty darn cool right?!
Hopefully you can see this little trail, I've highlighted around it, and its from a previous caterpillar's journey.
I'm really hoping one of these caterpillars will make a cocoon by my window, so I can watch them become a butterfly... its too much to hope for though isn't it?
And that little guy I first posted? Unfortunately, he took a tumble :( And he fell all the way to ground. I hope he's ok.
