The times are a changing.

Black and orange or orange and black. In recent years I have only found a few Cinnabar caterpillars. When we were kids each Ragwort plant in the fields behind our family home had many of these colourful caterpillars. When l find one today I am transported back to the carefree days of my childhood in the 60s unaware of the Cold War, the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missle Crisis.

The moth.

  1. I haven’t seen a caterpillar in forever and the last one was a Woolly Bear Caterpillar which “The Farmer’s Almanac” predicts the impending Winter by the size of the segment colors. It becomes an Isabella Tiger Moth, nothing particularly remarkable about it however.
