I have 8 caterpillars pupating in my closet… carefully closed so that Rabbi Catz can’t practice entomology.
for between 10-14 days they metamorphose… bodies liquefy and reform.
Darwin first proposed and science is confirming that insects are individuals… with emotions and  etc.
So is the butterfly a new being, or the same caterpillar in a party dress?
Thoughts of reincarnation (and Carrie nation) and life after the party’s over… and all in my closet!
Male Monarchs have a black spot  on a vein on each hind wing
These spots produce a chemical used during courtship … I think its love potion #9
Imagine if humans…..
 No wonder I suffer insomnia
