April 21st – Hairy caterpillar

Unknown Hairy Caterpillar

Most evenings in the country were warm and bright, but as soon as the sun dipped beyond the horizon it became chilly very quickly.

It wasn’t great weather for hairy caterpillars. Despite my best Google’ing I was unable to find a match for this hairy beast. We all consider these things as nasty pests, but if we were destined to spend the rest of its life as a moth we’d probably be bitter and annoying too.

It’s tough warning your kids of the dangers of hairy caterpillars while you’re nudging ever-closer with a macro lens.
