  1. What a ‘back-breaking’ curl from this caterpillar shape. Can’t say as I’ve even seen such a straight ‘stretch’ on any caterpillars at all.

  2. Strangely, his shape reminds me of the “hook” on the end of that seed pod you recently showed. I don’t think he’s getting ready to latch on to something and travel, though!
