Remember those chubby mysterious caterpillars that I blogged about here?
The mystery is now solved thanks to Bostjan who left this very informative comment all the way from Berlin
Speaking of comments, I have over a hundred comments that I have yet to approve, post and reply to. Apologies for the delay! Please know that each one of them is greatly appreciated.

I did not see them turn into cocoons because unlike butterfly caterpillars, they go to the ground, transform and hide among the leaves until hatch day. They are nocturnal which explains why I don’t see them. Oleander hawk moths are also wanderers. I hope they come back and visit us soon.
Thanks again, Bostjan!
