Artist's Description

This beautiful pale caterpillar is actually the larva of an Elm Sawfly, an insect found here in the US that loves to eat leaves! Found on a trail threw some lightly forested area here in NE Kansas, it was a surprise to find out it WASN’T a beetle, butterfly OR moth!
The last photo is his adult stage…a member of the wasp/bee family only no stinger, it’s a pretty common site in the adult form here and I’ve often just looked past it thinking ‘ew, shooo fly, don’t bother me’!
This fellow is curled up in a defensive posture on top of the bottom-side of a Hexigonal-pored Polypore, a gorgeous orange on the topside and here you can see the other beautiful qualities.
Thanx to everyone who played with me on the BubbleJeopardy to figure this guy out!
