Yard Critter of the Week - Red-humped Caterpillar

A Red-humped Caterpillar.

Yes, it is supposed to look like this.

From such a great start it turns into a rather nondescript moth.

Patty found several of these on one of our bayberry bushes. This is not the only curious looking caterpillar which enjoys bayberry leaves.


It's caterpillar season. Why not wander about your garden and see what you can find?

You can find all of the Yard Critter posts listed here.
