Remember the brown caterpillar frass I posted the other day when we took a walk down by the pond? We checked on the same beech tree on our Monday walk and discovered the identity of the frass-producers: Yellow-necked caterpillar, Datana ministra.
I was not aware that they fed on beech trees. Learn something new every day
The cats are eating well and growing quickly. In the photo above you can see a couple of middle instars above a bunch of shed skins. Wonder how they get their heads out?
