fascinating lecture about caterpillars

This past Sunday I went to a lecture arranged by the Butterfly Society of Virginia. The speaker was very knowledgeable about the caterpillars of moths and butterflies. A very good speaker and funny too. He spoke about common species and behaviors and the biodiversity crisis. It was fascinating all the way through! Something to think about while I'm painting butterflies! Dr. David Wagner is a Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut.

This one really stings!
