I thought one of my silkworms was ready to pupate this morning (panic panic). Apparently when they are ready to make a cocoon they exude a gel-like droplet from their tail end, and one of mine had some orangey-yellow stuff at the back end. Half an hour later though it had disappeared - false alarm probably. They still have another skin-change to go through before then.
This is how big they are now :-
They are changing as they get bigger and their heads are becoming more bulbous now. I had to split them up again this morning, they are now in five containers.
Here are a few photos taken of the countryside around our house the other evening :-
Sorry about the boring flowers - I just like taking photos of flowers, especially wild ones.
