Weekends are always busy for me, and this weekend/today is no exception. I usually try to post something I find more substantial that my usual posts, whether it be the amount of pictures or just the content. So today I've decided to share some of my favorite pictures. I hope you enjoy them.
This little guy is an Io moth caterpillar. Exactly one month ago I was at an outdoor concert at the local arboretum (the same place this little thing was growing). I noticed this little guy walking past me on the ground. I was happy to see it, like I am with most creatures, so I got a stick and let it crawl on it to take pictures. The spines on the caterpillar contain poison, but I touched it anyway to see how I would react. Nothing happened. I think I stared at this guy for a good 10 minutes before I realized I probably looked like some weirdo to all the people around me, so I put him on a tree and said goodbye. Kind of neat to think that it'll eventually turn into this:
I hope everyone has a good Halloween weekend. I'll be posting one little picture tomorrow in celebration of the day, nothing major. And I'll be resuming my active blog trolling by Monday to catch up with everyone.
