Yesterday, I thought I’d lost Pippin, my big-fat-green-caterpillar-cum-big-fat-red-pupa, when I saw what I thought was excess fluid under its pupal skin.

But I checked on it today and found that it moved its abdomen of its own accord when I touched it. So it’s alive!

Hopefully it’ll emerge soon and I’ll find out what it is!
