Another critter appeared this evening to add to the menagerie that has graced my garden this year. I've named him Spike. He's dining on the lantana, and there may be none left in the morning if he has brothers. :/

Spike is pretty brave, but who wouldn't be with all those legs to grab hold of stems?

The Spikester...




...in the caterpillar fetal position...

Know what? I'd love to walk around your garden with you some time. You are noticing. You are in the presnt. I am a big fan of caterpillars. I wonder if we can figure out his parentage?

I have to notice small things or I'd be photographing the same plants and bugs time and time again! LOL!

After an exhausting search, I cannot figure out Spike's parentage. I think he'll be some sort of moth, but I'm not sure which.

Too bad Spike has such a voracious appetite but he is a pretty guy with a punky haircut.
:D
I hope he's a loner and you don't wake up to a denuded lantana!

You and I would have dun doing garden observations together.

I think the lantana's safe unless more Spikes show up. ;)

Wouldn't we though?! I wish I had more of a variety of plants around me. I've taken forty photos of the blooming sweet potato already. LOL!

Really great photos!
I hope that his brothers found another table to dine at

Obviously the punk rocker of the caterpillar world.

Obviously. I wish I could find out what he'll become, but I've searched more than an hour and can't figure it out. :/

He was gone this morning, and I can't find any others around anywhere. At least he only nibbled of the end of one lantana shoot. :D

I just don't know. A Yehl Skipper was drinking from the lantana this morning. Maybe one of those, but I can't find the caterpillar version of it so I don't know. :/
