Hi shekainah d. alaban. Thanks for participating in Pollinator Insects mission. Unfortunatelly, caterpillars are not considered pollinators. On the contrary, they tipically destroy the flowers making more difficult the pollination. For more information please read the mission instructions.

Thanks SusanRuffanerGahagan, unfortunately I wasn't able to capture the transition phase. I was gone for a few seconds , when I came back it was already a pupa.

Very interesting.
