caterpillars Swallowtail

Caterpillar from both side

Today I wondered how the caterpillars of the Swallowtail, (Koninginnepage)were doing.
(see post one week ago)
it had been raining quite a lot...though today lovely warm day.
I discovered last week that one caterpillar had escaped.
Probably I didn't knot the little ribbons tight enough, so he could crawl away.
So only two are left and I didn't find more new ones.

They have grown more than twice their size.
I was amazed how big they had grown from so little food in one week!
