Running the gauntlet

Surprisingly, even with this very cold weather, some of the nasturtium has survived and there are still caterpillars of the large white butterfly. Every now and then a caterpillar will make the trek up the wall to metamorphose into a chrysalis. To do this they have to run the gauntlet of predators, mainly spiders. The one below had chosen the window frame between the large and smaller top window. It had actually started to change when this spider found it.
