Life Cycle 2

 

This is a Wanderer Butterfly egg about  a week after it was laid. I’ve done some Googling and the information I found said the eggs hatch in 3 – 5 days. There are no signs of any caterpillars on the bush but there have been small ants. I’m not sure if the ants would eat the eggs but I’ve put some Vaseline around the base to discourage them.

I’ve marked the leaf this egg is on so I can check it over the next week.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

So, what do you think?
