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.
