Went to grab some quick food for the Cecropia caterpillars, and the leaflet I randomly picked to feed them had A BABY on it! I have no idea who this is, though with the hairs, I’m guessing a tiger moth of some sort?
Caterpillar season is HERE!!! I’ve got three species going now! Plus the stick insects. Let’s see how overboard I go this year (please not too much 😭). I am NOT planting more milkweed and it appears my plants from last year did not survive (*phew!*)
I love caterpillars but they are soul-draining vampires and I am compelled to serve them beyond my will. Save me.

Again and again!
Post-molt glamour shots from March 31 (so beautiful!). But of course, baby molted AGAIN two days later!!
Hmmmmm I have no idea who this could be 😉
Tiger moth of some sort, probably Virginian.
