Today’s photos are from Pam Wittenberg in Santa Rosa, California. She says, “My husband found this caterpillar hanging out on the backside of a piece of discarded lumber in our side yard. I moved it onto a beautiful Tiarella blossom in the garden to take a picture. I don’t care if my favorite plants get eaten now and then, especially when the bugs who do the munching look like this!” Thanks, Pam, for sending this in! Anyone out there know what this little fellow is? Comment below!
