The Yellow Striped Oakworm
Sam and I stumbled upon this interesting little guy on one of our journeys last week! From their native home of Florida and not to be mistaken for its larger relative “The Orange Striped Oakworm”; these insects have been known in the past to cause mild to severe defoliation. .
The evolved “Riotte” moths are actually going to be present this fall after emerging from their 10 month hibernation slumber. They are commonly known to bestow their eggs on the underside of oak leaves. .

“...and under the storm candelabra would scorch her”
*Correction: they are the small brown moths you see here everywhere and they don’t eat clothes. They said not all will turn into moths because that’s just how nature rolls. I left them in the seed to decide if they want to close up the hole and make the seed a part of their cocoon (which was one suggestion they had) or if they wanted to venture out and make one of their own. Either way, it was cool to release animals back into the wild 😄haha #moth #jumpingbeans #befree #bug #nature #commonmoth
Empress Moth Watercolour Illustration (scroll for process) 🐞
The colour palette for this painting were inspired by emperor moths, I just love the combination of oranges, browns and grays 😊
