What is it doing?

Okay - yesterday I took the caterpillars back to Maddison's class and while it was there (up out of reach!) the big caterpillar came out of it's cocoon and started spinning another one!
This photo was taken about 10.40am.
At 2pm it looked something like this.
The smallest one was still hanging out upside down!
When I went to bed last night the big caterpillar was still working away spinning.
And at 6am this morning it was outside it's cocoon again!
I am a bit concerned about it. Lyndon wondered if they were a bit cold. So we have put them outside in our laundry area (it's quite warm out there! - like 35 degs!!). So hopefully they haven't been harmed being too cold.
The big one has started in a half hearted way spinning again in the corner.
The little one hasn't changed position at all!
And the one already in it's cocoon looks like this.
Hopefully they will "perk up" this afternoon! Hoping too that the big fella hasn't run out of webbing!
Lyndon got back from Singapore last night :-) I got such a surprise when he walked in the door with this ...

Oh my what a spoilt girl! :-) :-)
So I am off to play with that! I will be sure to let you know what I think of it heheee ;-)
Thanks for visiting.
