This striking caterpillar was retrieved from the path by a student on this week's Ecology field trip. The buff-tip, Phalera bucephala, is a large moth typical of the mixed woodlands in this part of the National Park - it feeds on a variety of tree species including Hazel, oak, willow and lime. It was more than likely heading in search of a spot to pupate for the winter; safely returned therefore to the other side of the path to continue its voyage.

On Wednesday we posted a photo of the Buff-tip moth and the day after we found that very moths caterpillar in the West Meadow! 🐛
.
This caterpillar is very striking with its yellow and black body covered in hair to warn off predators. This little guy was probably on his way to one of his feeding trees the Birch or Lime which we have in our meadows! 🌳

A Buff-tip (Phalera bucephala) moth resting on the side of the office 🦋
.
This moth is usually harder to spot as it likes to rest on trees such as the Silver Birch’s on site, so it’s wing pattern perfectly camouflages it from predators during the day as it prefers to fly at night. 🌳🌙

Found a brood of Buff-Tip Moth caterpillars feasting on a hazel tree in Benmore Botanics.. Thanks to @bcoulson82 for identifying them for me..👍 These moths are widespread throughout Europe, Asia and Eastern Siberia.. The caterpillars eat a wide variety of plants and can be found in groups before becoming solitary prior to pupating.. 😁🐛🦋👌 #bufftipmoth #bufftip #phalerabucephala #moth #mothsofinstagram #caterpillar🐛 #caterpillar #caterpillars #insectphotography #insect #insectguru #insectagram #insecthaus #insectmad #macroworld_tr #macroplant #macro_captures_ #macrointhewild #macro_love #tgif_macro #tgif_nature #tgif_butterfly #oneplus5 #hairy #stripes #larva #metamorphosis #awesomenature #awesomeinsects

Found a buff tip moth caterpillar on a dead twig on the pavement a few minutes ago.  Luckily I was given an Ikea spaghetti jar yesterday.  Added a layer of soil for the pupae when the time comes and some oak leaves for food.  Job’s a good ‘un #bufftip #moth #wildlife #caterpillar

Guess what's in this photo...
.
If you said a Buff-tip moth then congratulations! It may look like a  stick but this is actually a large common moth in the UK. You'll tend to find it in woodland, scrub and even gardens so keep your eyes peeled next time you're out and about.

Just about wet myself!  I thought there was a broke birch twig on my car. I went to pick it up and it fluttered in my finger tips. #bufftip #moth #camouflage
