I don't know why I didn't post these earlier, must have been sidetracked.

These little devils are voracious. It doesn't take long at all to go from image 1 to image 2..........................

Three months without a single grub! This was an accidental image, discovered when processing images of spent cone flowers. Consequently it's a very deep crop, but it is a tiny caterpillar.

Accidental or not Walter, this is an excellent addition to the thread. Thanks.

A very large grub, as big as any I've seen locally, that turned up when I was transplanting a buddleia. Right side up and rolled onto its side. I doubt it will survive now.

More than two months since I posted on this thread! Maybe I have this thread all to myself both now and henceforth.

I hope not Walter......................

Another excellent image, thanks for posting it. I'm in Melbourne, Australia, which is in its 10th week of a quarantine lockdown with a 5 km travel limit.
That combined with a colder than usual Winter, has finding little critters to photograph very tricky indeed. I'm really looking forward to adding to this thread too.

Covid has been a royal pain for every country where there's been a significant outbreak. Truth is, a really hard, full lock down, rigidly enforced for three weeks would almost certain halt the spread totally. But the people, at least some of them, would bitterly complain that it interfered with their "freedom," and businesses would complain that they would go bankrupt. In fact at the outset with only a few scattered cases, most people and businesses would not believe that a crushing pandemic was developing. So instead we had half measures, covid continues to stalk and cut down the population month after month after month, and the businesses go belly up in even greater numbers than they would have had there been a really hard lock down right at the start. Darwin awards in abundance (note my sign-off below).

Four months since the last post on this thread. I'll try to draw some additional larvae & grubs from the ground and woodwork with this SCAN
