What a beautiful caterpillar, Gary! Could you update bayucca's correct ID and add it to my mission, "Moths of the World?" Thank you! Here is the link:
I think you can share spottings on Facebook also by linking your Facebook with Project Noah. This will allow you to like spottings on their spotting pages, and it also gives you an opportunity to make a Facebook post about it.

Gary, each user can go into his own settings and set to automatically post his own pictures to facebook. You should not post anyone else's pictures as it may infringe copyrights, if you want someone else's picture posted elsewhere you should comment asking them to do it.

Hello Gary. I don't know why you wouldn't be able to share if you've got FB set up. But the easiest way to share a spotting is to copy the URL into an FB status...If you are interested in a particular image of the spotting set, a colleague advises: I guess he could post the spotting and add something like, "The 3rd image in this series is my favorite. Go check it out!". Maybe someone on the support chat might have other ideas...

S. Frazier I have a question for you. Are you able to post any of these pics to fb or twitter? I have tried over and over to no avail. I have emailed PN, but they can't help me. I love some of these pics, and want to share them, and maybe introduce more of my friends to this great app. I could just copy the photos, but without photographer's permission it feels somewhat illegal. I have my settings for share on fb, but for whatever reason they will not post. Why is there a share option if I can't use it? Unless, of course, I can only share pics that I post. I didn't think about that until just now. Please help, Thank You

Oh sorry Gary, I should have noticed! When I do maintenance, it's usually like an assembly line :-) But anyway it's a nice spotting, and Welcome to Project Noah! We hope you like the site (and community!) as much as we do. There are many features you can explore, but first you should read the where you can find all the advice and "rules" of Project Noah :-) We also have a blog where we post articles from our specialists from different areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures". There is also a support chat for technical help and a nature chat to connect with other PN users. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know but that have not yet been identified, and make other comments on other's spottings, and they on yours. We also have "missions" you can join and add spottings to Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add to a mission if your spotting is outside of the mission boundaries :-) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :-)

S Frazier thanks! I couldn't figure out how to edit after I posted the pic. It's my first post so I'm still getting used to the app

Amazing Lichen mimic! Caterpillar of something because it has prolegs with hooks.
