Now I do understand a little biology, and I'm aware of the whole caterpillar to butterfly circle of life concept. I just don't normally care to see the caterpillars doing their munching and cocooning thing.
I may, however, have to make an exception for the Spicebush Swallowtail that's staring at you here. He's said to have false eyespots making him look snakelike to scare off predators, but I think he's rather handsome.
These are just two of the remarkable photographs of "24 Colorful Caterpillars" at the Colour Lovers blog.
The fabulous color combinations speak to me and say Fall and Halloween… perhaps you will also find some inspiration in the colors of nature.
Enough bugs. Onto some some projects featuring Fall hues.
