Found this gorgeous creature lurking around our compost ashes. There are some absolutely amazing things in this world. Moths and Caterpillars are among my favorites!
This, I believe is an American Dagger Moth Caterpillar!
Started to harvest some of my carrots and realized they were infested. Beautiful Anise Swallowtail Caterpillars have taken up residence in the carrot bed. I believe I am going to let them be.
After some research I have learned that they thouroghly enjoy munching carrots on their way to Pupae and Adulthood. Absolutely beautiful creatures.
