This caterpillar avoids predation by accumulating alkaloid toxins which are concentrated in the milkweed's sap and also have defensive hairs. It is common mid to late summer.
Daniele, Thank you. I did attempt to pull down the Menu with Categories but it wasn't working.
I've changed the category for you Susan. When you're in Edit mode there should be pull down menu with Categories on the top right of your page, with the category currently selected showing.
I wish I could touch your beauty, once in my lifetime!
Your welcome, Susan Carol Sam.
Kostas, I would change the category as per your suggestion but I am not being given that option in edit. Will try again later.
Thank you maplemoth662!
A beautiful photo, and a beautiful caterpillar...
Nice shot! Please change the category of the spotting from "Other" to "Arthropods". Caterpillars are larvae of lepidoptera and lepidoptera are arthropods.
Gilma, it is!
