OH Rgeurts!!! You crack me up!
I am so 110% with you.
At first glance of the first picture I thought, AHHH, what a beautiful creamy Caterpillar with blue spots but the more I read and saw SCM's tent caterpillars, I'm losing on the subject too.
Maybe someone could produce a picture of a caterpillar turning into a beautiful, coloured flying creature?
