This is a stick caterpillar that’s been hanging out on the obedient plant for several days. It’s one of the coolest insects I’ve seen in my garden yet! I wonder if this is a host plant they commonly feed on?!
This is the kind of awesomeness we get to see since we don’t use pesticides. I can’t wait to see what other surprises we will encounter this summer. When the boneset, lobelia, ox-eye, and obedient plant bloom there will be a lot of butterfly photo ops. Yay!!!
I’m mostly writing about planting native plants, attracting/feeding wildlife & beneficial insects, and not using pesticides. Whether you have a very small or large garden, every little bit helps I’m sure. I’m sharing what I learn and discover along the way. I’m not going into a lot of detail about everything, but occasionally I might. Put your phone down and go see what you can find by looking at your plants up close. 🙂
