Checkerspot Caterpillar

This is a photo of the Checkerspot Caterpillar, most likely a Gorgone Checkerspot, but possibly a Silvery Checkerspot. There are hundreds of these guys devouring the sunflowers and coneflowers. Will post a second photo of them on one of the coneflowers.

Fantastic! I'd love to have hundreds of them on my coneflowers!
