More from my arboretum pre-hunt. Larval lepidoptera of one sort or another.
No name for the caterpillar or the flower bud, but they are a perfect match.
The hemizonia plants have sprouted, and the caterpillars have returned to eat them.
There are still a few monarch caterpillars to be found.
Inchworm. (Maybe half-inch. He was pretty tiny)
Fat green looper.
