Photos: Caterpillar In Sunshine

Today’s photos show a caterpillar on our yam vine in the early morning sun. I believe this caterpillar is the yellow-striped armyworm or cotton cutworm (Spodoptera ornithogalli) which is known to feed on a wide variety of plants.

This caterpillar will develop into a moth.
