The Datura had a lovely flower this morning.
Sometimes called moonflowers, they open at night and close by mid-morning.
Hum, something seems to have been chewing on the leaves.
A few ants were running around on the top of the leaves, but I don’t think they are the culprits.
It’s a young hornworm caterpillar.
You can tell it is young because of the relative length of the “horn.”
Yesterday we looked at a children’s book about cute animals. So, are young hornworms cute or not?
It looks like a unicorn caterpillar.
