Found these little caterpillars on my Silver birch tree yesterday managed to isolate the branch to get a few images, not sure what species they are, any ideas?
we have these at the allotment now ...
will come later to see if someone has I.D'd them
At first glance I thought the Buff-Tip moth caterpillars (they are poisonous and have an unpleasant smell!). I'm not sure if they have enough black on them though...............hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along soon!!
I really like how you've isolated and captured them!
No ID from South Africa Jacky Interesting photo !!
Amazing image, sorry cannot ID them
Great shot Jacky but can't find them in any of my ID books, sorry.
Nice cluster and great colour................sorry no idea as to the ID..........
What an unusual collection!
Maybe they'll all be beautiful butterflies soon.
A nice image, no idea what they are Jacky
wow great shot lots of them. christine
I'm with Karen in saying they're Buff-tip moth larvae, probably judging by the size 4th or 5th instar (moult). Good find.....
Almost looks they have formed the shape of a map of Africa, well spotted and taken
Super capture of this huge group.
Not sure of the species but I think the collective noun for this bunch should be A Wriggle!
Theres only room for 6 more!! Great colour and detail in this fine image Jacky!!
Oh my goodness Jacky,
