Drawing inspired by a poem. Particularly this paragraph: “I see myself in orange moths and winter moths one evening in November’s brush, they mirror the moon-rays’ refracted splinters and play at sunshine in the night’s dark hush.” #valleyofbutterflies#ingerchristensen
A few weeks ago I found 3 caterpillars on cut flowers my mom brought into the house. Found out they were winter moths and made cocoons in the ground. So I got a net and a host plant in a pot with soil (same type I found them on) and they ate and grew and burrowed to make cocoons. First one came out today!! #mothmom and #mothdad (@joel_o )
This caterpillar will eventually turn into a not-so-brilliant Winter Moth. He begins a day-glo green and ends a drab brown and gray. His metamorphosis may not bring him beauty, but it will give him wings. 🐛 #metamorphosis#caterpillars
We have been quite disheartened lately by all the winter moth damage we found in multiple orchards across the city. But last week we spotted some signs of hope! A new, healthy crop of leaves has grown back on the apples trees at the Meridian Playground. Compare the light green new leaves with the dark green chewed up leaves. . One tree, the Rubinette, is even blooming again! .

15th May 2019 • Sun sun sun, I've been spending all day making most of the weather hoeing and weeding in preparation for the weekend. I plan on getting everything looking perfect by tomorrow so that Friday I'm just polishing off the last bits and bobs. The herb garden is really coming into it's own, with everything (thats allowed) just starting to blossom and grow. Unfortunately the orchard was attacked by winter moth caterpillars who have in 24hours demolished most of the leaves of many of the fruit trees, hopefully it wont be affecting the fruit too ...
Look who ate up my seedlings... i noticed after a couple of days but couldnt find the pest. Turns out a winter moth larvae finally made his appearance. Im so sad because these were the first plants i successfully grew from seeds :( #caterpillar#sad
