Jan 30, 2013

A week or so ago, I captured some caterpillars on one of our mango trees.  I am having a go at rearing them to see what they turn into ...

Wee hairy beasties in yellow, orange, and black
move with imperceptible slowness across the mango leaves,
vacuuming off the surface layer of cells and
leaving brown in their wake.  
Small agents of destruction, growing larger every day.
