All silked up

Looks like someone else is getting ready to pupate...
My white-dotted prominent caterpillar has been looking funny lately - getting brown spots on its body, not moving much, sitting on the bottom of the jar, yet still eating and pooping in great quantities (just look at the size of that frass!). Yesterday I noticed it silking up around the bottom of the jar, so I ripped up a few leaves and threw them in to act as a substrate (better than glass alone, I'd think). We'll see if it follows through, I'll surely take more photos of the whole process.
