Peppered moth caterpillar - Mount Hawke.

By Tom Hughes, Sep 12 2017 09:06PM


Biston betularia


An interesting but common "looper" caterpillar that blended in closely to the brown rose stem. I think this one will overwinter in it's current form before pupating next spring ready to fly in May 2018!
