Found these fantastic caterpillars on a self-seeded mullein growing out of the side of a raised bed in our vegetable patch and had to look up on the internet what they were. Will be leaving them in peace to do their stuff on the mullein and hatch out into the adults. The caterpillars really are fantastic and voraciouis eaters, if they finish the mullein, there is an old buddleia nearby that they can feast on. Our gardens are to share and my children will learn from watching these wonderful insects develop!
