I’m bracing myself for hundreds of caterpillars to appear. We may have to catch them and set them free in the wild on similar plants (or bite the bullet, bring a few more plants in and turn the yard into a reserve for red moths). Yes, the eggs can be very hard to find unless it’s a species that lays the eggs together in a mass. Those Large White Butterfly caterpillars were on Nasturtium growing around a greenhouse in Cheshire. I found a clump of eggs and photographed the eggs first and followed them through the life cycle. Great choice for size. And this pair even seem to be on leaves that match their size! Thanks Debbie. It was one of those times everything fitted in the shot. Like something from a fairytale – lovely image. For some reason, caterpillars like these always bring to mind my childhood so strongly Thanks. Thinking about it, they bring on childhood memories for me. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
