{the simple things} caterpillar

"Mommy! MOMMY!!!!! Look, we found a snake!!!!!" big brother races through the yard, excited. Turns out the found a caterpillar on the lawn. Not quite a snake, but most definitely the largest caterpillar I have ever seen.

We watched him for quite a bit. He was pretty fast, but since he wasn't really sure what to make of the two boys staring at him, he decided he's better not move at all and test their patience.

Needless to say, he won. So the boys got a bit braver, trying to touch him gently to make him move. I only let each one touch him once, and then we decided to leave the poor thing alone. Or at least watch from a safe distance.

Eventually he was gone.

Any critters you encountered this week?

Happy Sunday,

  1. Da fliegt dann bald ein praechtiger Schmetterling bei euch vorm Fenster vorbei ;) Definitiv besser als eine Schlange im Garten.


I don't know about you, but I love reading comments. That's a hint for you to leave one, btw. Not that I'm begging here. But I do love hearing from you...
