I found this caterpillar out in my yard in Amherst, Virginia, taking a walk on a stick. I haven’t seen this type before, but I think it’s pretty cute with those little pink feet. :))

    Beautiful capture, Ginny. We have some in Florida that look a bit like this and they sting worse than bees. The hairs are very toxic.

  • Thanks Margaret…for the comment and the info. I have heard that these little spikey type caterpillars can be toxic before….so I never touch them….just in case!
