Common mimes

On the way to our GP, I spotted these common
mime caterpillars on a small cinnamon plant,
beside the road. I was surprised as I had never
seen any caterpillars there before.

The one on top is a 5th instar cat, and the one below
is a 4th instar cat. I am hoping to see the 5th instar one
pupate and eclose. This is the dorsal view.

Side view.

The 4th instar caterpillar, dorsal view......

... And side view...

I will check on them and post what happens, so stay
