This sequence shows the 1st instar larvae of the Mojave Electra Silk Moth group precession and feeding behavior in time lapse. These spiny little caterpillars hatch in late winter/early spring from a cluster of eggs laid the previous fall. They remain together in a tight group for protection until they are much larger. Much more butterfly/moth video, photography and life cycle studies available free to the public at HTTP://jcmdi.com, and the Hi-Res version of this video is available on DVD at http://technician.jcmdi.com/lepdvd01/... for details.
