Check out this Saddleback caterpillar I ran across today! They’re pretty dang neat, having venom-secreting urticating hairs to ward off predators and all. Also their “saddles” always reminded me of Yoshi.

My hands were really unsteady this afternoon, but I really wanted a shot of this cute bugger.

aaaalso their venom can cause a nasty rash and even nausea in humans, so protip: don't mess with them.
