Vapourer Moth: A Bright Male Caterpillar   28 comments

Yesterday I saw my first vapourer male moth hanging out on a rose-bush.


I think this is the ‘peacock’ of all male caterpillars that I have seen in my life to date.



A warning about the pretty vapourer moth is do not touch to your skin. The hairs can cause mild irritation to most people.


Nature never fails to amaze me.



Enjoy your day!
