A trip via the Hahnenkammm Gondola to the Panorama trail.
Today I saw my first geometer caterpillar. Many geometer moth larvae bear cryptic markings that resemble plant parts. When threatened, these inchworms may stand erect, extending their bodies straight outward from the branch or stem they are gripping, to mimic a twig or leaf petiole. I tried to capture this caterpillar in both positions. Here are a few Orchids and spiders I found today.
