Scarlet tigers

Scarlet Tiger Moth (Callimorpha dominula) caterpillar
Last week there were quite a few Scarlet Tiger Moth caterpillars at Butts Piece. Today I found one; perhaps last night’s frost killed the earliest of them, or perhaps they went to ground and will emerge when it gets warmer – I’ll keep an eye on them.

  1. Lets hope these survive the temperature drop forecast for the week ahead.

  2. I was glad to see a dozen or so caterpillars this morning – so far so good!

    Still here
