I won’t be able to ID it… but I think it is very pretty. Is it some kind of a moth caterpillar?
i WISH! and i have to get a tad technical here………it’s not a ‘true’ caterpillar? so it’s not a moth or a butterfly (hehe)
A sweet little caterpillar! Wow! Look at the colors on that. :o)
i fell in LOVE with it till i found out what it was to become. thanx Bunny!
i love it’s little ‘nubs’…it was very beautiful. thank you Pardus
It’s a gorgeous creature, whatever it is.
it’s considered one of the largest of it’s family while in larval form? i have to agree though…my son and i spotted him and just went WOW!
It has purple on it… I’m in love… : )
lol…wait till u find out what it IS!
It must make some sort of nasty – probably biting – fly, since its not a butterfly or moth. And that would be an insect that would both turn your stomach and come from a larva rather than a caterpillar. Which one? Aside from a mushroom wrecking one, my guess would have to be a very large fly. I almost said horse fly but those are not much bigger than house flies around here.
you’re VERY close! u gotta go to the 1st image though…type in ***fly…and u’r almost there! lol (it’s not a fly…just part of the name)
I’ve got nothin’. LOL! There are a pile of things on the first image but none seem to go with flies. LOLOL! The only thing not mentioned is something I know it’s not: a dragonfly. They don’t have larvae; they have nymphs, unless there’s a kind I don’t know about. And they aren’t gross tho.
Well, I cheated and went here so my last guess is blowfly. But a maggot isn’t a cute thing, no matter what it looks like and none of them eat shrooms. This is the closest I’ve ever come and I am more frustrated than ever!!!!! You are VILE, smart woman!!!
somebody beat u TO IT! lolthis is an Elm Sawfly:Cimbex americana!yack…i don’t do ’blowfly’s lol
The color, light and detail are wonderful!! So pretty here but would probably scare me if I came across it somewhere!! LOL
i’m still left in awe of it’s beauty Barbara….i’m not a huge ‘worm, maggot, larva’ kinda person but this one was just stunning to me.it curled up the moment it knew it was ‘spotted’…thanx for commenting :o)
Congratulations, Carla !!! Saw your image on the home page of Red bubble. Looks Stunning !!
HOLY COW! no way!!!! i miss ALL the cool stuff! haha
