baby caterpillar

As I was out collecting milkweed to feed my caterpillars on Saturday, I found this tiny little baby caterpillar, so I had to take it home to watch it grow.  I put it next to a large caterpillar and a nickel to give it some perspective, so you can see how tiny it really is.  I measured the big caterpillar and it is 1 1/2 inches long.

This is the same little caterpillar today, Tuesday, and you can see how much it has grown.

By the end of the week it will probably be about as big as the big one in the first picture.
