Green treefrog, Hyla cinerea
It's amazing what you can find during the course of a single walk. The gray treefrog and the tall grass posted earlier where also from the same walk that offered up the images in this post.
I think I took over 190 pictures that day. So much to see!
Pearly wood-nymph caterpillar, Eudryas unio. This one will turn into a pretty moth.
Definite tussock moth, Orgyia definita. Despite its fierce appearance, it's not a stinging cat. Some people may be sensitive to the hairs, though. In reading about this caterpillar I learned something very interesting. It seems the females of this group are wingless and lay their eggs on the outside of their cocoons.
Apparently this caterpillar did not love the skin it was in...I guess it was getting a little too tight :) A Smartweed caterpillar, Acronicta oblinita, grows up to become a Smeared Dagger Moth.
This little fellow was tricky to spot, but he couldn't hide from the eagle-eyed Treebeard! We aren't 100% sure about the ID of this one. It is probably a Gray Hairstreak caterpillar, Strymon melinus.
Another tussock moth. This one is the White-marked tussock, Orygia leucostigma. Some people may experience allergic reactions when the hairs of this cat come in contact with the skin, particularly in sensitve areas like the stomach, inner arm or back.
