At least, I think that is what this is. I’ve been through all the caterpillar pictures on www.bugguide.net and this is the closest I can come to it.
It was on a cherry bush that my sister, JoAnne, gave me. I’m not sure what kind of cherry it is.
It’s quite small…perhaps 1/2 to 3/4 in long.
I clipped the bush and put it in a container…..
The feet are like little suctions. Watch it climb up the inside of a jar.
After making the video, I put it back on the bush.
I am amazed at all the different insects, animals and birds I see in my backyard, here in the Hammock. We have 5 acres but only about 1/4 is cleared and that is where most of my pictures have been taken. Guess I need to get out the hiking boots and the machete and see what I can find out there.
I think a digital camera would be a wonderful gift for a kid. Encourage them to take pictures of every insect or critter or unusual or pretty flower and then spend some time on the computer looking them up and learning about them.
