The Caterpillar Lab fosters greater appreciation and care for the complexity and beauty of our local natural history through live caterpillar educational programs, research initiatives, and photography and film projects. We believe that an increased awareness of one’s local environment is the foundation on which healthy and responsible attitudes towards the broader natural systems of this world is built.

Petal Dress Up

February 25, 2017

Camouflaged Looper, Synchlora aerata, plays dress up and then has a snack at a Caterpillar Lab show.

Made this little film from one of the first videos we ever took - a digital microscope capture at one of our outreach programs years ago. It's rough... but charming I hope. Enjoy!
