I wonder how many thousands of years Nature took to design this Caterpillar! Found it crawling on a Blueberry bush this afternoon. It had a pretty red head that wasn't captured very well in this photo.

Ruth , that is exactly what I thought. Some of the longer hairs are the color of my grandfathers shaving brushes. My Dad's also, be he eventually started used shaving soap out of a can.

Thank you Barbara. They were magnificent little tufts of hair...the short hairs and the long ones. I'm constantly amazed with detail of the things I never paid much attention to in my earlier years. Nature in all her magnificence is wonderful to observe.

who knows. ah ting for example looses her wits when she sees one. screams on top of her lungs, just like my mother when she saw a small innocent mouse. fears and reactions are based on some cultural concepts.

Metamorphosis is a fascinating thing Jake....I totally agree with you.

Thank you Jean. This type seems to like Blueberry and Mandevilla leaves. I let them eat all they want, but rarely find any damage.
