Soldier - Danaus eresimus

Soldier - Danaus eresimus
Coconut Creek, Florida, USA
Danaus eresimus larvae change color when prepupal. Characteristic of many larvae, this is a visual cue that the larva no longer requires food and is now in the wandering phase looking for a place to pupate.

Amazing color change...
