ANGLE SHADES MOTH CATERPILLAR




Thats the green "model" of Angleshades moth caterpillar above.


NB. About three weeks later (13/01/08) - found the brown "model" of the same species of caterpillar in the garden, crawling up our woodpecker post.

I'd like to say it is quite obviously mad, but to be honest, the woodpecker post is probably the safest place in the garden for it! No woodpecker has gone near it. Yet...

I'm afraid I don't know what your caterpillar is.... just wanted to wish you and your fiancée a very happy Christmas and hope you haven't had to work too hard today and are now home with your feet up! Also wanted to say a BIG thank you for your great comments about my site. I'm really glad you like it... hope I can keep it going in 2008!
