Nature Friends

garden fairy enjoying her discovery

A walk around the block is a three mile adventure. There are so many things to discover and my garden fairy loves them all. I don’t know what kind of caterpillar this is, but it is her friend. Everything that moves is her friend. This friend was fairly large for a caterpillar, quite possibly the largest I’ve seen. Interestingly, his “eye” is on his rear end. He’s not the only creature I’ve seen lately who has a false eye to confuse his predators. I wonder if this is the butterfly equivalent of a giant cyclops.

    Wow, I’d love to know what kind of caterpillar that is.
