What do caterpillars do apart from devouring our favourite plants?
Occasionally caterpillars create little masterpieces. The above is called Flowers in a Heart. A caterpillar munched a cabbage leaf to produce a heart-shaped hole. Tiny flowers from a herb plant bloomed right through the heart.
The artistic culprit has now transformed into a moth. Moths which usually drink nectar are important pollinators at night. However, they produce little hungry babies which have a totally different diet.
When you see holes in your favourite plant, remember to look out for messages from the caterpillars. Sometimes they leave behind messages of love and gratitude.
