When we got home we found this crazy caterpillar in my neighbor’s driveway!! I can’t get a good pic of it but it’s like three inches long and bright green with a blue horn on it’s butt. We’re building it an enclosure so we can see what it turns into.
I’m going to go do…
Yep it’s a hornworm. A tomato hornworm. They eat up and destroy peoples tomato plants. But that little spike on its butt is just for show, they can’t really use it. It deters predators from eating it.
One thing they’re good for tho, is that bees… I think hornets… Lay their eggs on them. Then the eggs hatch, eat the hornworm from the inside out, and then you have more hornets. Kind of gross but that’s how it goes!
do you know how difficult it is to feel secure in your looks and personality and overall self when absolutely no one has ever shown any interest in you whatsoever like yeah you shouldn’t base all of your self-confidence on other people but still there’s like always that irritating little voice inside of you that tells you that you’ve never been worth a second glance or getting to know for anyone and you can try to ignore it all you want but it’s still there
