Stages of the Bagworm



During the last rainy season I took a deep dive into observing the small things around me. One thing I saw for the first time was the emergence of a bagworm. I have seen many large ones before, but never one that is just starting out. The bagworm in the first photo is about one quarter inch long, the second about an inch and the last one is about three inches long.

Such a lovely sequence of photos of the bagworm. Do you recall the time frame from the first to the third photos? Several days?
Thank you MA! The first two photos were taken a few weeks apart. I'm not certain it was the same bagworm. The other large one was taken in a different location many months later.
So perhaps one season of growth? Thanks for the reply.
