march to your own beat

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him keep step to music which he hears, however measured or far away.

a wise man

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.

grief

There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.

the works of the Creator

The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the works of the Creator.

molting

I got some better pictures of a caterpillar molting.  This time it was hanging in a way that I was able to photograph it from behind instead of from the side, like the last time I got pics.

This is what the molted skin looks like after it has been shed.

Alfalfa

I found many different shades of alfalfa this summer.  My fave, of course, is purple.

peewee’s big adventure

Last Friday I had two rebel caterpillars that somehow managed to escape.  My daughter found one of them and put it back.  I didn’t realize that there was another one missing until Saturday morning when I was sitting on the couch and looked to my left and saw a caterpillar hanging from a houseplant leaf.  Since it was already hanging upside down, it was too late to take it off and put it back with the others, so I had to leave it.  It formed a chrysalis later that day, and now I’ll have to keep a close eye on it and hope I can get the butterfly safely outside before my cats find it.  The caterpillar had to go down the side of the entertainment center, cross 11 feet of floor and crawl up the side of the end table and onto the plant.  Quite a trek for such a little fella.

It traveled from the far upper left to the far right.

Now we wait…

another tiny caterpillar

The other day, I went out to collect milkweed to feed my caterpillars and I unknowingly brought home another very tiny caterpillar.  It was on the underside of the leaf and I never saw it until I was getting ready to put it in the butterfly house.  I took a few shots of it with the nickel and with a full size caterpillar to show just how small it really is.
