Camera Critters #227

The other day, I walked out of my door and suddenly ducked my head and almost lost my balance.

Right in front of me, suspended at the height of my eyes, was a small, beige critter.  After I regained my composure, I went into the house, got my camera and close up lens and took a photo.

After a short search, I found the critter…it’s an Apple Maggot larvae, also known as an apple worm.

Very nice critter find. I would have probably walked right into him and then had a meltdown when the squiggly thing landed on my nose.

Probably not a good critter for an apple tree. We had millions of tent caterpillars in our alder trees this year. - Margy
