Little and large Large White Butterfly caterpillars.

One Word Sunday: Size.

Big and small.

We have some small red moths in the back yard this year – up to five at a time living on just two or three plants. 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.
