(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday

Almost stepped on this critter while I was walking the other day:


You can’t really tell from the picture, but this thing was as thick as two of my fingers and about four inches long. I was afraid to get too close because it had horns on its head!

Having never seen anything remotely like it, I had to look it up. And I learned he (or maybe she) is an Imperial Moth Caterpillar.

I think.

And if so, it’s going to be one BIG moth some day.

What do you think?
