Collected rather large bagworm on Watsonia leaf in Camferskloof, Outeniquas. The caterpillar kept feeding on various Watsona sp I offered.

Coccinea hitcher reared

31 August 2019:

Collected food plant including Erica coccinea below the contour path on Kleinmond mountain. At home I discovered a caterpillar hiding in one of the flowers, feeding from within. Once it was placed in its own, clean container it was easy to track progress by the presence of ejected frass accumulating on the tissue paper lining the bottom.

18 October 2019:

An absence of new frass indicated that the caterpillar must have pupated by now, or may have been resting in preparation to pupate.

11 November 2019:

Moth emerged. Unfortunately I was away and could only take photos after the moth had died.

Hummingpillar #2 reared

14 April 2020:

Collected caterpillar on Coprosma repens in the garden in Kleinmond.

18 April 2020:

I am intrigued by the colour variations common in Sphingidae, in this species I've witnessed a green form and a pinkish-brown one. I decided to keep this caterpillar in a tub with a bright orange lid to see if that might make any difference. Answer is none, in this case.

22 April 2020:

Caterpillar did some messy cocooning and releasing of fluids at the bottom of its tub, then rested for a couple of days.

24 April 2020:

Caterpillar pupated.

14 May 2020:

I caught the freshly emerged moth just in time to witness the unfoldening of the wings, life affirmingly perfect and magical as always.

Compost worm reared

10 January 2020:

Collected caterpillars from my wormery. I often see them walking in the damp along the sides of my worm tub, and they appear to eat compost rather than fresh food scraps.

11 January 2020:

The caterpillars immediately started spinning shelters underneath the little bit of compost I provided.

18 January 2020:

First caterpillar pupated in a tight little cocoon underneath the compost.

1 February 2020:

First moth emerged.
