Some caterpillars I reared from eggs found recently
No interactions present.
Brilliant photo John. 2 fine caterpillars.
Did you confine them on the foodplant or bring the food plant indoors ?
I just got lucky with the eggs , fed them on Lombardy Poplar leaves in a container ,needed a lot of attention . They did not feed for 24 hrs but investigated the entire container surface .The food was changed twice daily they are voracious feeders . Put on poplar tree for pics ,and am thinking of releasing them on it for their own good ,not sure how to mind cocoons if I get that far .
