[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm seeing more and more caterpillars now. This one has red feet. The Yellow Woolly Bear I posted clearly had black feet. There are a number of possible matches on the internet including Tussock Moth, American Dagger Moth, and Spotted Apatelodes. This guy was very active and munching away.

Hope you enjoy!

Hi Reid,
A fine capture of an unusual looking caterpillar. As Jimmy Buffet sang, "Who's The Blonde Stranger?". Excellent detail and color. Very well done.


That's one hairy little feller! ha ha How cute and unusual.

Go through your gallery sometime and look at how rapidly your photos got better and better. I think you and jmirah have learned the most in the shortest period of time. Very impressive! :D

Hi friend,
What a beautiful image! It is perfectely sharp , colors and details are just outstanding! Take care Ana:)

hello Reid

superb photo of nice vivid colors
excellent focus, i like the angle the photo is taken
and the framing gived to the image



This is very good Reid.
One of your clearest shots I think.
This pretty caterpillar looks so cute and furry,but I'd think twice about touching it.
I know that some of these hairy caterpillars can be very dangerous.
A fantastic shot though.
Very well done.
