Egg & caterpillar on lady's bedstraw
Observed: 7th July 2011 By: Mele
Added: 8th July 2011
Beautiful white moth (?) egg on lady's bedstraw. Tiny (really tiny) caterpillar observed on another plant. 2 hummingbird hawkmoth butterflies seen ovipositing in same area at same time. Have seen HBHM eggs before but they were freshly laid and green. Pardon quality of shots, my camera can't really cope with things this small. The bedstraw plants were very small, say, 5cm long at most.
