One thing about spring and summer in the Maritimes, there is an abundance of bugs. Here are several of the more interesting and least annoying ones. I know I have previously posted the pictures of the clearwing hummingbird moth, but I couldn't do a series on bugs and not include this guy.


  1. The clear wings are amazing! I've never seen a moth like that before.
    Cute fuzzy wuzzy caterpillars.

  2. Wait a minute what is that yellow insect? I like the color but looks like it make you itchy when you touch it. ^_^

  3. i is a cute fuzzy wuzzy catepillar just as kay noted. it is totally harmless and will not make you itchy :-)
