cecropia moth caterpillar
Dear Lisa Anne and Daniel,
About a week after my hickory horned devils left my sumac tree, I found three cecropia moth caterpillars on an apple tree sapling. I managed to snap a few pictures of them, as well as that of a large praying mantis; my entomologist friend in town said this was probably a representative of an introduced species. I found the cecropias as cool as the hickory horned devils. I’ve never seen so many bizarre and beautiful caterpillars in my life. Best Regards,
Hi Again Glenn,
Thanks for sending in your Cecropia Caterpillar photo. We have gotten many photos of them this year.
