More Cinnabar Moth Caterpillars

My Cinnabar moth caterpillars are still feeding away in the garden and are noticeably increasing in size. I'm not sure how long it will be until they start the transformation process but I hope I get to see them emerge.

The picture above shows how much of the leaf this particular individual has devoured. The black things on the leaf are droppings I believe.


  1. Thank you, Adam, for your recent comment. The caterpillar photography is amazing... and I really wanted to say how much I like the new masthead/banner/blogskin. We didn't see any Puffins off Skye, but they are my favourite bird. I've only once seen one off the Pembrokeshire coast.

  2. Thanks for the kind comments Caroline. I'm glad that you like the new look of my blog. It certainly took long enough to do.
