My wife went nursery shopping this morning and brought home a plant complete with a very distinctive caterpillar (actually she bought the caterpillar and the plant to feed it). I grabbed a couple of quick shots figureing to get better ones later, only the caterpillar soon disappeared - either it crawled off to pupate or got nailed by one of the wasps. By an odd coincidence the caterpillar turned out to be an American Lady, the adult of which I recently posted in the Wildlife forum - http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=11

Interesting caterpiller - I hope it escaped the wasps. Isn't it nice to get a two-for-one deal?

hey P,
i'm very surprised you even know the word, Lagniappe.. much less the meaning as it's really not a translatable word

Lagniappe== to me? ''a little extra''
i was going to name my last boat Lagniappe until i saw it on another. i ended up with'' the good times'' or ''les bons temps''.. we had a latino game warden in our area that pronounced it perfectly and i almost fell out of the boat. come to find out he was a languages master and spoke 5-6 languages.

I remember when shopping at the mom & popgrocers when I was little you would most times get "lagniappe". Might be a couple of piece of candy of a little comic book or something. They would say "c'mon, little one, get your lagniappe". Good times...

Thanks for the recollections - they evoke fond memories, but what does anybody thinkof the caterpiggle? Rather extroardinary creature, don't you think?
