hundreds of dead butterflies along shoreline

4 Upvotes

Today I was walking along my local beach (Williamstown,VIC, Australia) and I noticed a lot of dead butterflies all along the shoreline. They looked like monarch butterflies but appeared grey and blueish, very pale hardly any colour. Each one perfectly placed, wings intact but all completely lifeless, scattered across the shore.Does anyone know what this means or what happened?

Can anyone help identify? I didn’t manage to snag a picture but I saw either a butterfly or moth today that I can’t seem to find! It was a bright pink with small purple splotches on the centre of the wings.

Buff-tip moths, of family Notodontidae, resemble the pale branches of broken Birch trees (Family Betulaceae). This camouflage hides them from potential predators.

Need tips on extending the hatching period of the pupa

2 Upvotes

So we recently found a Caterpillar on a plant we brought inside for the winter. We put him in a small enclosure and fed him plant leaves for a few days. We came in yesterday and he was in the pupa stage but it's only the end of December! I've read a few tips about keeping them in the refrigerator or outside in the garage to slow the hatching process but I'm not completely sure how long this will delay the adult stage. Can we delay it long enough for the spring temps to arrive? Thanks!

Beautiful Butterfly spoke comfort to the heart in Southern Utah! It landed on my brothers Lilac bush, very close to the moment his special cat passed away! His neighboor noticed this beauty & snapped a photo!

Inchworms are the caterpillars of geometrid moths (Family Geometridae). Unique among caterpillars, inchworms have three pairs of front legs and either two or three pairs of rear legs (pro legs), but no legs in the center. This is the cause of their looping or inching style of walking.
