I find most caterpillars scary. But I still want to photograph them in order to document what types are seen in my garden. The above photos were taken earlier this month. The plant is the Sedum sexangulare/Tasteless Stonecrop.
And on the bougainvillea was this hairy black one. Below is a brown one on my tomato stake.
But here are my favourites! The tiny caterpillars of the Common Mormon swallowtail butterfly chomping away at these lemon leaves! I can't wait for them to turn into butterflies. And it's worth planting lemon saplings just so they can come and increase and multiply!!
