These are really nice shots! I once watched a caterpillar crawl all the way up to the top of my bird bath, take a few sips of water, and then crawl all the way back down. It was one of the most interesting things I'd ever seen!
I too have watched them in the yard. I watched one, one evening as the sun was setting, crawl up the clothesline pole, get to the top and when the sun set, it crawled back down. I guess the caterpillar wanted to watch the sun set, as I did....:)
he/she is a beauty... i stepped on a black one of these about 60 years ago and still remember the sting. have not seen one this color
But you were patient enough to wait!
Cute little fuzzy guy....wonder what he will look like after metamorphosis?
That is so cute. Hard to tell if he is coming or going. :)
Wow, he is a handsome one! Bet he will make a beautiful butterfly.Lynne x
But hey, nice captures of it!
Great photos, Gail. Hope you all have a great Wednesday. ^_^
It's not only at a snail's pace but at a caterpillar's pace, too!
Perhaps it was warming up since the rock was in the sun. You know, not everything handles rocks like you do!!...:)JP
Brown Woolies . . . Spring is near! You tease . . . how long?
How sweet it is!
Gotta love the persistence!=)
What a fuzzy fellow this caterpillar is. Very fun shots of it.
Bet it took an age to cross - but you have got some great shots here.All the best Jan
Ha ha. :)
They really are not driven by an inner clock to rush around like we are. They seem to appreciate their time, short though it may be.
