Salad Bar for Caterpillars

IMG_6997-001Dr. Ross Feltes, the Meadowlands Commission’s Supervisor of Natural Resources Management, pointed out last week that several Dogbane Moth Caterpillars were going to town on the Indian Hemp in Harrier Meadow.

He sure was right. There had to be at least a dozen caterpillars devouring the leaves. Here are some pix of same. The Indian Hemp seed pods resemble milkweed seed pods.  (Thanks, Ross!)
