I agree with the girls above. this caterpilar is simply gorgeous! only you can find those amazing creatures ;)
This is a young one,When they grow older they´ll have a more reddish colour.The foodplant of this caterpillar is Euphorbia.It´s a very common plant in our surroundings.In late summer,early autumn I just have to search these plants and almost every year I find some of this attractive and colourful caterpillars.:)So they´re really not hard to find if you have the knowledge where and when to look for them.;)Thanks Manon!
where do you live right now?
