ANOTHER STRANGE CATERPILLAR AT THE FARM.

Yesterday Farmer Mary found a big, green, strange looking caterpillar. She took a picture this morning and it had already spun a light color web.

After googling she found an adult with similar, but more pronounced, coloring.

The identification was a Cecropia Moth which is North America’s largest native moth with a wingspread of six inches.
Here is a picture of an adult female.
