Caption

Cocoons. Two silkworm (Bombyx mori) cocoons amongst twigs. These cocoons are spun by silkworms (caterpillars) to protect themselves as the pupate for metamorphosis into silk moths. The silk of the cocoons is harvested for use in clothing and fabrics. Once the cocoons have been produced, the pupae are killed to ensure the silk is not damaged by the emerging moths.
