Camera Critter Saturday - Caterpillar Shopping

There are some basic rules to shopping for caterpillars. Mister Mocking Bird has volunteered to demonstrate these rules.

Rule 1: Always carefully inspect your caterpillar. You don't want one too small but you don't want one so big it will not fit in your beak. Make sure your caterpillar is clean and free of blemishes. Following this rule will ensure you get the most out of your meal.

Rule 2: Carefully pluck your choice from its environment. Be careful not too squeeze too hard as that will effect the flavor but be sure to hold it firmly enough so as not to lose your caterpillar.

Rule 3: Run as fast as you can so no one else will catch on that you have a very delicious caterpillar in your beak. Other shoppers may try to steal your groceries if you aren't quick!

Hopefully these rules will assist you in your next caterpillar shopping experience.

Funny, Jessica! Loved your story. I mean that bird's story. (We must be on the same caterpillar wavelength. I photographed one, too, the other day, although haven't posted the little fella yet. He was all white!)
