Hungry As A Horse!

Today I’m featuring a couple more images of the Clouded Crimson Moth caterpillars that are busy feeding on some Gaura wildflowers in my wildflower garden. I’ve also included a short video of one of the caterpillars as he chomped up one of my Gaura plants, that I made with my camera and macro lens. Enjoy!
