Today begins a nice little stretch of time alone, but suddenly not entirely alone - I came home with another caterpillar rescue from work. This one seemed particularly bad, as he has traveled from california so he must have been terribly chilled. He was wriggling slightly to our touch, and I have an empty bug apartment since the last tenant moved out, so I'm giving him a shot.
This is a Corn Earworm, and he likes corn. So I guess I will have to buy some corn. It took him several hours to warm up, but he's gone right back into munching as if waking from a light nap. Such resilience!
