Random Wildlife

20160918_0955221600x1200Something has been sampling my jalapenos but I didn’t spot the caterpillar responsible till yesterday.  I first thought it was new new one because I had never seen one with those white things.20160918_0954181600x1200Next to the jalapeno is an ornamental pepper – a “Black Pearl”.  It has a visitor with the same white things.  A quick search online resolved the mystery, the caterpillars are the familiar hornworms with cocoons of a parasitic wasp.
