Bug of the Week: Caterpillar on Mexican Hat

Our bug this week is a tiny caterpillar.

At first it looked like a bit of debris on the top of a Mexican hat flower.

Upon closer examination, it is a tiny looper caterpillar, Family Geometridae.

I was hoping to learn more, but it disappeared shortly afterwards.

The world can be a harsh place for a tiny caterpillar.
