Caterpillar update

A few days ago I mentioned a very late brood of large white caterpillars feeding on my cabbage. The caterpillars appear to be doing OK despite the cold weather so I’ve taken a picture of their progress.

Late instar large white caterpillar

There is still quite a range of sizes but some are late instars now and should be able to pupate before the weather gets really cold.
