I was walking today and just down in the hedgerow I saw this little critter!
But I can’t find out what he is!!
He was about half an inch long.
See Ya xx
Last year I saw my very first yellow and black striped caterpillar and here is is the photo I took of a bunch of them:
So this little caterpillar eats the ragwort which makes it ‘unpalatable’, maybe even poisonous. Mind you I wasn’t thinking of eating one!! Actually poisonous to predators!
Once they have eaten their fill and done what caterpillars do they turn into this:
If you had seen me in the field yesterday, chasing around after 2 of these moths…you would have laughed. I pretty much looked like a mad woman…but I got the shot I wanted.
See Ya xx
