That awkward Bug girl

Hey, I'm Anna! I'm just your average art major/ bug dork.
Feel free to send me any questions, or submit your own photographs!

Today while I was walking around my backyard, I noticed a lot more caterpillars than I usually do while I’m out.
There were so many hickory tussock caterpillars, Lophocampa caryae (the fuzzy white ones)
I also found a snowberry clearwing sphinx caterpillar, Hemaris diffinis (the green one with the little tail thing)
and, the one (actually two) I’m most excited about…
The Promethea Silkmoth(!!) , Callosamia promethea.  The two caterpillars I found are in their last instar, and should be pupating very soon.  I will be keeping them to let them pupate overwinter with my swallowtail… so long as it doesn’t emerge beforehand!

Giant silk moths are my favorite! <3
