This Blackberry Looper-Chlorochlamys chloroleucaria caught my eye after the Cabbage White flew off.
I haven’t photographed an adult yet but with any luck this larva will give me the opportunity. When mature, it’s an emerald with white lines and quite attractive. similar to this cousin I shot last year. There are plenty of New England Aster-Symphyotrichum novae-angliae, blooms out there so it should develop nice and healthy. Their food is, as you might imagine by the name, blackberries which are not present in our yard but they obviously are not fussy and eat composite flowers as well. They are found throughout most of the U.S. stopping short of the western states but somehow miss West Virginia and South Dakota.
