♥ MOTH MONARCH
I found this small friend yesterday next to the sidewalk. You can’t see his red bands in this picture, but he was a giant leopard moth caterpillar. He seemed very vulnerable, so I carefully brought him back and put him in a tub with some host plants, but he didn’t eat. Turns out he had to molt! Now he’s back outside and will hopefully return to feasting and grow up big and strong. Maybe I’ll even see him at the porch light next spring. :D

Stop by for totally cool bug buttons, postcards, art prints, original pieces, and more! The new bandanas are now in production but there’s still a little time to preorder, too. Support independent art and show your love of bugs!
