CATERPILLAR MIX

in #photography6 months ago

While walking along the narrow path that leads to the sea I noticed two different caterpillar species feeding near each other on the same plant.

I never saw this combination before ... and I don't know what type of butterfly will these larvae one day become ... and the most important thing, I never saw different caterpillars forming some kind of small herds, usually you can see only the same species together.

As always, the photographs are my work.

Sort:  

The dark caterpillars belong to the small emperor moth (Saturnia pavonia). The green larvae belong to the leaf wasp (Periclista albida).

Great :) thanks ... now the story is much more complete.

They might be friends :p
Anyways nature is incredible, so are your photography skills.
Keep flourishing.

Thanks :) ... true, they might be simply friends :D
