Finding caterpillars- observing insects

Some of the kids finding tent caterpillars. They had fun discovering what they turn into, and what they do.
Because I know caterpillars are particular about what they eat, the girls weren't allowed to collect any of these ones. We were too far away from the food source.

Excited when they found some caterpillars.

I cannot imagine what other insects the kids will discover this year on our travels, but as we find, discover and learn I will make sure to share our adventures.
Learning every day.The interest in these pesty type caterpillars is what led to the girls finding our eastern black swallowtail
