RE: Ia St Fair NOW Monarch Larvae-Now onto another caterpiller all together...

I "caught" a very LARGE caterpillar coming down out of one of the elms in
the front yard.  I have photos if anyone is interested and would like to
take a shot at what the related butterfly/moth might be.

The caterpillar was that soft lime green of a luna moth, with spots on its
body that were an iridescent blue & yellows.

Have not had the wildlife I usually do here this year. But the weather
has also been very strange too.

I believe one of my neighbors is really responsible tho... found a
number of dead rabbits near my pond this season. Thinking someone has
put out something to control the population.:( They better hope I never
figure out who it is.

Chemical free here too!
