Backyard Science

Our grapevine has been invaded by green caterpillars. 
They come and eat and eat and eat.
We all have been finding them, they are bright green with eye spots and a black tail on the back ends. I think it is a grape vine hawk moth caterpillar, but will be watching carefully over the next few days.
Today J noticed they are starting to change colour and hang themselves upside down (which was very exciting). Now we are estimating how long it will take for the metamorphosis to occur.
This is what we saw today...

Stay tuned!
