What I Saw Wednesday - Striped Garden Caterpillar Moth
Something has been eating one of my plants in my garden and I thought it might be our resident rabbit. But after further inspection I found that it was not and a little black and yellow fellow munching away.
If you look closer you can see him and his friend enjoy a late lunch.
I was excited thinking I had Butterfly Caterpillars in my garden but after further research I discovered that they are Striped Garden Caterpillar Moths or Trichordestra Legitima. Oh well, they are eating plants that seem to grow more once they are eaten and they aren't eating anything else, yet.
Plus they make good subjects for photos since they are colorful and move slowly. So think I will let them stay for awhile.
