This one is 6 centimeters long, and marked by green, yellow, black, and orange patterns on its body. Like the spotter, the spotted is barely waking up as the sun rises once more. (Important lesson learned thanks to the caterpillar: the spiked end is the rear end, NOT the head! Well, we all learn somehow right?) :)
It was found in my yard, on some lush green weeds.
Notice the green head with dots, the spike/horn on the rear, and that incredible pattern on its body, marked by spots and designs courtesy of Mother Nature. Here is what the adult moth looks like: http://nitro.biosci.arizona.edu/zeeb/but... Furthermore, I have no idea why it was found in this pool of water. Ideas?
