Luna Moth Caterpillar

A Luna Moth Caterpillar (Actias luna) spotted on the hot 12th day of July.

Once again it was the sharp-eyed Summer Campers (Floor to Canopy) who spotted the insect of the day out in the wilds of the Museum of Life + Science. This time it was Camp Counselor Hannah who first saw the large green caterpillar climbing on the block column leading into Catch the Wind from their Outdoor Classrooms in the woods.

Good spot Hannah!

Note: I removed the caterpillar from the column for the photograph and later placed it in the leaf litter of the woods.
