Bug of the Week: Caterpillar

I admit it, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to come up with something new to show you this week. Even though the weather is getting nice and the flowers are blooming, it just seemed like I’d seen it all before.

Well, at least until I visited our snapdragons…


Now who is that with its head in the snapdragon?



I’m afraid this post will require an edit, because I don’t know what kind of caterpillar this is. Do you have any guesses?

    Ouch this is very nice, yet one of those used to eat lot of stuff in the garden. You have such a nice refreshing blog here. Love the lady bug header. Anna 🙂

    Looks the a Sympistis sp., likely Sympistis perscripta, the scribbled sallow http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=10154
