This is Henry the Caterpillar and he’s ready for his close up ! I posted earlier how happy I was that I get a couple pics before he “pupated” ( correct term +Chris Mallory hmm?) .I have been saying cocooned lol Anyway, here he is in all his fluffy late instar ( that’s what they call the stages I think ) glory. At first I thought he was a Scape Moth caterpillar but I have since changed my mind. I think he’s a Fall Webworm , we’ll see if I’m right in time. He’s nice and tucked away in a leaf fold for the time being though, taking a very long nap :)

  2. G'morning Rachael! Awww, it's even more fluffy than I'd imagined :) Such a cute little guy. How fortunate that you were able to get some photos before it pupated too! For what it's worth, I think you totally nailed the ID too, so good job :)
