Shy Dogbane Tiger Moth Caterpillar Hiding Behind His Dinner
Walking around a small pond, I discovered this hungry little guy munching on a dogbane leaf. I moved in very close, even tickled him with my camera's lens, but he was NOT moving. Nope. No way! Which was perfect for me because I had tickled him totally by accident. ;-)
True, I know very little about caterpillars but I do know a fair amount about plants so I googled "caterpillar" and "dogbane" and discovered a picture of another Dogbane Tiger Moth Caterpillar.
