Your natural reaction might have made you think you were looking at eyes, but oddly enough you'd be closer to the truth if you thought you were looking a nose instead. These curious looking ovals along the side of this caterpillar are respiratory structures known as spiracles. Spiracles are the entrance to a branching trachea, which primarily delivers oxygen directly to the caterpillars tissues.

Looking forward to keeping Manduca sexta again! This was when I kept them a few years back. This one was perched on my thumb to pump its wings. Took a whole half hour! My hand was cramping towards the end but it was worth it :) #Entomology #Lepidoptera #Sphingidae #Manduca #Manducasexta

These are Manduca sexta pupa! M. sexta is a sphinx moth commonly known as the Tobacco Hornworm moth. This moth is used in many scientific experiments because of its short life cycle, large size, and accessible nervous system, and because it is very easy to raise. It's range includes much of the United States, + Mexico and the neotropics. They feed on tomato and tobacco leaves. The reason that the larvae are greenish blue is because of a protein in their hemolymph (blood) called insecticyanin.
In the photo, the M. sexta has recently entered the pupation stage of life, which will take around 18 days.

Annie watches a mournful sphinx moth (male) balance on my thumb. She thinks I'm holding a magnificent dog treat. The moth wears a gothic get-up and features a trio of curious projections from the tip of his abdomen. He flies by day, loudly whirring his leafy wings. The larvae of mournful sphinx moths feed upon grape and pepper vines, which grow abundantly around the island. Thanks to @tjlinehanfilm for discovering this somber beauty on our doormat. #enyolugubris #mournfulsphinxmoth #sphingidae #rescuehound

I do so love this time of year: when mornings are cooler, leaves are changing, and caterpillars are big and fat!

These were a few of the banded sphinx moth caterpillars found resting on primrose willow plants. (They were safely replaced back on their original plants)Now I just need to find where they attach themselves for making their cocoons... #lepidopteran #caterpillar #sphinxmothcaterpillar #insects #sphingidae #moth #natureisawesome #lepidopteranlove #lepidopteransofinstagram
