Sorry about the late reply. Thanks for the compliment on the clarity. The box tree Catterpillers were on a bush and they were quiet visible which made it easy to get some clear photos of them. They Were well camaflauged though so you wouldn’t of known they were there unless you looked Closely. I forgot to add a film I did of one of them. It’s only a short one though. It looks like its trying to get to the other leaf to munch.
Interestingly its an introduced Species and isn’t native to the UK. There was lots of them on the bush. Since there was lots of them I think I might see lots of Box tree Moths in my local area if they do successfully turn into Box Tree Moths.
They were only on that one bush. and it’s just outside a old tree that has a fence around it. I didn’t even know they were there. I’ve taken photos of caterpillars before since I had Cabbage whites in the garden cause I had a food plant called nasturtium but I think these close ups are probably my favourite out of all the photos That Iv taken of Catterpillers before.
