Yard Invasion

25 Sep

Large green caterpillarThere has been an invasion.

In my yard.

And not just one, but two somebodies have invaded my yard.

My person was pulling weeds out in the yard.

No, my person wasn’t the one invading the yard.

But the weeds were.

Oh, that makes at least three somebodies.



My person pulled up a weed, and there it was.

Large green caterpillar with intricate patterns

A big old green caterpillar.

Invading my yard!

And I know there was someone else because – just look at that caterpillar.

An artist was in my yard too.

Painting on that caterpillar.

A pretty good artist at that.

But the artist disappeared before my person exposed that caterpillar.

Otherwise I could have caught two culprits at once.

So I did then next best thing.

Bongo with his tongue out and curled up

I ate the caterpillar.

Note: No caterpillars or Bongo’s were harmed in the making of this blog post.

    Why Bongo. What a big tongue you have there. What a satisfied look you have on your face. Was it a good caterpillar?

      Kimberly, I’d like to say it was juicy and good but my person is making me tell the truth. I didn’t eat it. It crawled away and hid again.

    No you didn’t, Bongo!!!! …but did you know that this little weird caterpillar shall become a monarch butterfly soon? I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t had a colony in my balcony! My asclepias [milkweed] attracts them and then they go munch up my poor rue leaving it leafless!

      Marina, I guess our poor plants have to suffer so we can enjoy the beauty of the butterfly.

    Yuck! I will agree that it is a very pretty caterpillar and might one day turn into a beautiful butterfly..but not if you ate it…

      Patrecia, my person is making me tell the truth. I didn’t really eat it. It crawled away and hid again.

        ah well it was a good story, but even better that you did not actually eat the butterfly.

    The caterpillar is quite a beauty as caterpillars go, but I wouldn’t have thought they would be very tasty Bongo. Best left alone to turn into a beautiful butterfly one day.

      Barbara, I guess it’s good that I didn’t really eat it then.

    A tattoo artist must have helped? Molly would have been so excited, she would have tried to shake paws…incoming giant paw!

      Karen, I’ll have to invite Molly over next time one of those caterpillars shows up in my yard. I’m sure it would be delighted to meet her.

      Kevin, my person says they turn beautiful once they become butterflies. I guess you just have to put up with them until then.

    That is a beautiful caterpillar. Do you have any idea which type of butterfly it becomes?

    • Bongo

      September 26, 2014 at 9:16 pm

      Marty, my person looked online and it looks like this caterpillar is going to become a Sphinx Moth.

        Oh pooh! I was hoping for a gorgeous butterfly. A beautiful moth is nice too though 🙂

      • Bongo

        September 26, 2014 at 9:36 pm

        Marty, some of the sphinx moths are very beautiful, but the ones we see around here are usually plain.

      Collie, I bet I can find some more caterpillars as soon as my person pulls out the rest of the weeds.
