Creepy-Crawly Caterpillar

Aren’t caterpillars just the oddest things?  Some days I marvel at their vivid coloration… other days I can’t help but find them a bit creepy.  This lil’ guy is a tomato hornworm caterpillar – I found him on one of the tomato plants (surprise!) earlier this week, and I couldn’t help snapping a few pictures before I relocated him to a corner of the yard far, far away 🙂

  1. I noticed the numerous simulated eyeballs on this guy. Protection from birds, I suppose. Back 20 years ago they panted eyeballs on commercial aircraft to keep birds away from the runway.
