    Dang Caterpillar

    Found this caterpillar munching on my Sarracenia yesterday evening. So I took a few pics to try and identify it, then I noticed the pictures were turning out pretty nice - it was dusk and the flash was going off, so I snapped a few more while I was out there. Oh, and I never got a 100% positive ID on the caterpillar, although I think it is a fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea).


    Here it is, after falling in while attempting to pick it off the plant. It soon crawled back out:




    Here's the only damage I noticed:


    and now for some of the other pics I took:

    'Judith Adrian':


    [(oreophila x flava) x leucophylla] x open-pollinated:


    leucophylla x rubra gulfensis (antho-free):


    'Fireworks':


    'Boob Tube' x open-pollinated:
