life with a sunny boy
I was so fascinated by these caterpillars that I wanted to know what they were, so I think I found it: a cinnabar moth caterpillar. The moth is gorgeous. I got a link. Wonderful photo!http://www.arkive.org/cinnabar-moth/tyria-jacobaeae/http://meeyauw.blogspot.com/2010/07/camera-critters-117-tractor-chicken.html
Wow, I do not think i have ever seen that many caterpillars together. Great capture and your flowers are just lovely!
Flowers are lovely, caterpillars are not. LOL.JJ
wow I wonder what those little caterpillars will turn into. Lovely Iris - mine has just finished flowering up here.
Beautiful Iris!I'm sure the caterpillars will be too!
Very, very pretty flowers and great pictures!!But I love the caterpillar more:)
Thanks for sharing the photos today. I love to take caterpillars to school in the fall and have my students observe the changes. Many times we are blessed with a butterfly after a waiting period! ♥♫
The caterpillars are squirmy. I love your second shot. It's exquisite.
That's a lot of caterpillars! but I wonder how they will turn out later on, as butterfly I mean.
Love the color of the irises!
Must say, I like the flowers much more than the caterpillars...they're creepy grouped so thick like that! Ewwww. LOLDAPPLED SUNLIGHT on Plumbago Blossom I'd love to have you visit with me today if you can.
Those caterpillars are having a grand old time, what an amazing shot of them. I truly love the iris shot, they are beautiful.
Yep, those are Cinnabar moth caterpillars! They're the best natural control for Oxford Ragwort that we have - they can strip a plant down to the soil. Unfortunately, spraying for weeds has robbed them of their food source and I haven't seen them in that number for several years now. The moth is very pretty too, with fuchsia pink spots and striped on dark chocolate brown. Great shot!And I loooooove that first flower. Such a gorgeous blue, and I've always loved irises. I can't grow them here because it's too dry.
Caterpillars will become a beautiful butterflies, a great shot! Thanks for sharing!Turtles and frogs
I love the frilly parts of flowers! ANd I love all those caterpillars!
I love how the caterpillars have tried to masquerade as a flower but have been busted by other commenters anyway! Glorious shots by Nozy :)
I love Iris those were my moms favorite flowers. These are beautiful.
I have never seen a caterpillar close up. I have to say they don't look as pretty as the butterflies! LOL
