Update on the common mime.
Yes! Yesterday, while the cat was pre-pupa, I did
not get to go out and check. But today, I did. No
homework, so there was lots of time. And Yippee!
He (dunno if girl or boy) pupated! Here.
Common mime's pupa are very clever. They mimic
a broken-off branch super well. See the 'broken tip'?
It also has an angular base, making it seem that the pupa
'grows' out of the twig.
I am soooo happy! This is my first butterfly pupa.
Now, I hope to see it eclose. :)
