Hi Gan,
Saw this butterfly flitting among the Cinnamon leaves..., thought it was an unusual Glassy Tiger!

When I had this twig in my hands, it suddenly came and laid an egg on a pink juvenile leaf.

The twig is now in a glass of water, and the pink leaves are wilting!
Will the egg hatch and the catterpillar live?

Angie,
You mean it laid egg on the twig you were holding in your hand :o
Yes, the egg should hatch in 2~3 days. I am sure you will enjoy baby sitting this baby :thumbsup:
