Hi! So I was just watering my lemon tree when I found this little weirdo hanging out. He’s 2 inches long and is a very thick boi. He seems to have only eaten 3ish leaves, so I think a bird dropped him or something. He was moving a bit when I found him, but he’s been completely still for the past 10 minutes. There are also these clear dot things I can’t tell if they’re eggs or not.
