CATERPILLAR

Thought you may like to see what has been going on in my garden today, not much left of the nasturtium plants!

This is the caterpillar of the large white butterfly, they are usually found in clumps.

What a lovely photo! nasturtiums can be a bit of a weed at times but I find that they make useful "sacrifice plants" ie. the insects prefer them to my veggies. I just pull them up and discard them to get rid of the insects. I wonder what sort of caterpillar / butterfly that is?

My nasturtiums succumbed to black fly! I like Matron's ideas of a sacrifice plant. Might try that next year, although I do rather like nasturtiums.Great picture.
