Worms - ~10mm
I know the chrysalis is that of a White Cabbage Butterfly but what are the worms? If you look closely the second one is under the chrysalis "tail". This was about three feet from the ground in the corner between the back door and the house wall and it was a wet day. At the time I only noticed one worm which crawled up to the chrysalis and stayed there for a day or so then moved off and shrivelled up. A few days later I noticed another worm at a friends house, also shrivelled. It looks as if it could be a juvenile earthworm but can't understand why it was up the wall instead of sheltering somewhere else.
