Here’s a picture of a stink bug ? sucking the life out of a monarch caterpillar, taken in mid-August. The photos are extracted from an image sequence shot from video camera. Yesterday, I went on a monarch caterpillar hunt with my two nephews. First we found another dead caterpillar, all life sucked out and black in colour. We then found another in a paralyzed state. I set my video camera up to film the same scene with the bug sucking the life out of caterpillar.
Last week, we found four caterpillars.
