itchy, bristly, creepy caterpillar by 

colorful caterpillar that causes so much itchiness if you come in contact with it

Featured in: Insects, Bugs, and Creep Crawlies Group

I love to take/create photos of things that we normally don’t see or maybe even take for granted. There is just so much beauty even in the most ordinary things like raindrops or the curl of a fern leaf, or even your ordinary egg slicer.

I also love interacting with creative and inspiring people.

And I love challenges! They inspire me!

    Clarity of this creature is great. Love the blurry background. Now i know why it causes so much itchiness. Thanks for posting. You have done a great job with this one.

  • Thanks very much Grace! Yes, I myself was curious how this creature or “higad” (as we call it here in the Philippines) looks like. So when I saw one on our plant, I immediately got my camera and followed it around as it devoured the leaf. I didn’t realize that it’s so colorful and has beautiful patterns!

    Well, it’s good you don’t have to touch it to capture it! Terrific focus:) Sandy

  • Hello Sandy,
    Thank you so much, most especially for adding this to your favorites!
    Oh, I wouldn’t touch it at all because it causes so much itchiness! I was just lucky I saw it on our plant, eating away the leaf!

    It looks so very nice in the picture though i am scared of this kind of creature. I like your perspective on this shot.

  • Hi Grace,
    That makes two of us! Being scared of this bug, that is! However, I was really curious as to how this looks like and when I saw it’s color and patterns, my photographer’s instinct overcame my fear. I simply had to take its picture!
    Thanks for coming back!

    That’s so cool! :) Love these caterpillars, wonder what sort of butterfly this one is?

    Gabe :)

  • Thanks Gabe! I’ve never really seen what kind of butterfly these caterpillars turn out to be. I’ve never caught sight of them emerging from their pupa.
