Remember back in August, I saved a pair of fat green caterpillars to raise? Well, they happily crawled around and ate tomatoes and tomato leaves for around 3-4 weeks. Eventually they stopped eating, and their activity went to almost zero. Then they both buried themselves in the leaf litter. One was visible at the bottom of the jar; the other not visible at all.

Well, last night, I noticed the not-visible one had emerged and was hanging upside-down from the top of the jar!

Took it outside, and it immediately climbed out and hung itself on the side of the porch railing. It was sort of a mottled brown color. By morning, it was gone.
