Mullein moth caterpillar spotted today!


Mullein moth caterpillar- the first one I have ever seen.  I found this morning in my "wild" area, feasting on a plant I don't know...(will try and identify later).  I don't think I have ever seen the moth, either, but it's pretty nondescript, isn't it?  They are hungry buggers apparently, but there is plenty for this little one to feast on, and he's very attractive.  Picture not mine but life size.  Can't see any more caterpillars, so he may be a solo visitor.
