[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's hard to believe this fierce looking caterpillar will eventually weave a silk cocoon and transform into a large beautiful moth someday.

I will post a full size shot of this colorful yet mean looking guy tomorrow, and give you his true identity. In the mean time see if you can figure out who he really is.
