Day 202 of 2017

This is an American Dagger Moth caterpillar. 
He was visiting my front porch this evening. 
Evidently his "fur" is toxic 
and will cause stinging, itching and possibly a rash if touched. 
I did not know this at the time I took the picture. 
Luckily, I did not touch him. 
I wouldn't have anyway.

  1. What an interesting wee fellow - I would have been tempted to stroke him as he looks so tactile! Pleased you didn't try :-)
