Caterpillar update 2

This morning’s hard frost may have been beautiful but I don’t think it was great for the large white caterpillars (Pieris brassicae).

I think the large caterpillars should be OK despite them looking pretty cold:

However, I think the frost may have been too much for the less developed individuals. I’ll keep and eye on them and report on progress but they don’t seem to have done as well as the others.
