Name that Caterpillar (An Identification Contest)

It’s so hard to get back into the rhythm of life after a tragedy but I know its the only way we can move forward so I am pushing myself.

I’d like to challenge my readers (and their children) once again to do a little research and learn a little more about nature in the process.  This little guy came to visit me on my back deck at a time when I was feeling really down.  He is beautiful and curious.  

Can you name that caterpillar?  If so, post here in comment and leave a link with your “proof” if you have it.  Will he become a butterfly or moth?  Moms and Dads – even if it is easy for you to identify him, let your children take the lead (with you as their guide) to do it themselves.  The library has many identification books for you to take home or if your child is old enough there are many tools online as well.  

On Monday, June 24th after 8 p.m. I will randomly select a name from the comments section.  The winner will receive any e-book on the Little Acorn Learning Website for FREE!  

Best of luck!~  
xoxo

  4. I agree with the others, mourning cloak butterfly caterpillar. I tell my kids you can tell her by her black cloak cover her wings. But you can see the edge of her dress.
