|The Lyman Cecropia
|Monday, September 10, 2013|
A second larva is found!
|He (she) is still there: still holding on after a fierce wind storm. |
It seems as though the coloration may be slightly less intense.
|Perri, caterpillar-sitting for the week, found a second caterpillar nearby on the same bush.|
