NaturesFolly(West MI 5)July 15, 2012

I know I have seen this posted on this forum, but I cant remember where I saw it at so am asking. I found this cat on a milkweed plant while gathering for the monarchs. I tried to do several searches but didnt get very far.. but here it is.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I finally found it.. Milkweed Tiger Moth.. not very impressive as a moth but stunning as a cat.
While going thru the pictures tho I found out I had some hairstreak cats on the hibiscus... 2 so far.. may have to go get them and try to raise them.
