Default Columbine Sawfly larvae

Faster than a speeding bullet, able to eat tall, healthy Columbines down to nothing in a day, Pristophora aquilegia, Columbine Sawfly larvae I guess. Darn things...

That plant was the picture of health yesterday! They didn't eat the flowers. I figured the leaf miners would do their thing as usual, but they wont get to eat this one. There's another Columbine a couple feet away that hasn't been touched.

Sorry, not very good pics but you get the idea

I just now squeezed a bunch of 'em. Icky, but effective.
