A few days ago I had to turn in some papers for my college stuff and I was really annoyed by that. Walking back home I noticed a huge caterpillar on a fence and proceeded to put it on my briefcase and take it home to see if I could take care of it.
Well that was three days ago, yesterday it became inactive and had two silk strands attached to a stick I put in its jar. Today it's officially pupating, and now I play the waiting game. This seems to be a sign that I happened upon the caterpillar, apparently it's going to (hopefully) soon be a Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly.
