The cycle of life
This is the pawpaw sphinx moth (
) caterpillar last week.
This happy fellow pretty much killed our little pawpaw tree (which is okay since it's not in a good spot anyway).
But, true to the vagaries of life, one day, you're at the top of your own little food chain, and then next day, you're parasitized by a wasp.
"He's dead, Jim."
Fascinating and gruesome at the same time. Much like life.
