New Instar on the Block

This little guy, a Milkweed Tussock Caterpillar, along with hundreds of his siblings that covered and devoured our milkweed plants not long ago will become Milkweed Tiger Moths next spring.

Discover Life is a great site for identifying caterpillars and other living things by a characteristic check off system that is fun to use.

Thanks for reporting that.
