"Interesting caterpillar, a beetle and a damselfly"
Came across this caterpillar and shot frames for a stack. When I saw it on the computer I noticed the strange lumpy texture on the body. I hadn't noticed it in the field. I posted it to BugGuide and they said it was a "Mummy" caterpillar. It was infected by a fungus (probably) and was apparently dead or near dead.
The Damselfly is I believe an older female Eastern Forktail which has turned blue gray from its original orange.
The beetle is I believe a Swamp Milkweed Leaf Beetle. It's a six frame stack.
D800, 105 f2.8 on the beetle and caterpillar and the 300 f/4 with tubes for the damsel.
