save the Queen 2

The caterpillars of the Swallowtail (Queens-butterfly) have grown !

Now you can see great difference with the previous ones, which I took 5 days ago.
(See post 12 aug).
They have much more color now, and the stripes and spots are coming through.

In the beginning they look a kind of nothing, these caterpillars.
They sit and eat, no more, no less, and normally I would overlook them..being so small and only being food for the birds.
But now I know that these are the small beginnings of such a beauty butterfly, I have new eyes to look at them.

Maybe many things in life are like that, that you don't see the full potential of something, and you look at it as being a no thing, of no value and not important...
It somehow it is a secret, in appreciating the small things in life.
