butterflies, moths and their caterpillars

Unlike most insect photographers, I focus on caterpillars rather than their adults. Just to remind you that every butterfly was once a hungry caterpillar…..

The tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta
The beet armyworm, Spodopera exigua
The large white, Pieris brassicae

The greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella
