Butterflies and Moths: Drinker Moth Caterpillar and Small Copper Butterfly

A Drinker Moth caterpillar

(Euthrix potatoria)

Minsmere, 2 June 2013

I know the caterpillar above is far from hidden, but do take a look at this extraordinary article on caterpillar camouflage.

We saw our first Small Copper butterflies at Minsmere on 26 May 2013.

Both the caterpillar and the butterfly are pretty. Great sighting and photos.
