A Hunting We Will Go and....

Gabbie and I went back out to look for caterpillars and eggs today.

No such luck, but we did grab a bunch of milkweed in case our eggs hatched at home.
(Don't you love my beautiful "hunting" outfit?)

When we got back, we went over to check on the eggs.
What did we find?
Two little caterpillars that had just emerged and were beginning to munch on their eggs!

Since then, all four have hatched.
I'm so happy Gabbie had a chance to see the 1st instar.
Luckily these little guys won't grow too much by tomorrow so I can show the students on our first day of school!
