I’ve seen quite a few monarch caterpillars lately which make sense as there have been many butterflies about.

I found this eastern comma (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Polygonia comma) basking in the north garden while I harvested tomatillos and weeded.

Caddisflies hold still so rarely that they don’t often make it to the blog.

I found this pale white mayfly on the edge of the forest after a larger Hexigenid got away.

There are lots of caddisflies around right now, including this larger one that I managed to capture while it clung to dead grass.

Walnut Moth Caterpillar

This is a new caterpillar find for me, it’s a walnut moth (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea: Notodontidae: Datana integerrima). It’s a large black caterpillar with long white hairs.

I had a busy day mowing lawn, trying to remove dsv, and tending my sauerkraut but I didn’t have much luck finding good insects.
