Caterpiller Dreams - Weekend Reflections

On our last walk, I was so busy looking at the amazing clouds in the skies above, I almost missed this small fellow.  My Sister Clytie was the first to notice this bright little caterpiller sporting sparkling dewdrop diamonds on a patch of green clover.

You can find more wonderful pictures from around the world at Weekend Reflections.

How beautiful! I am glad you took a moment to look down! I don't think I have seen a fuzzy guy in these colors...

Are you sure it's not a cat? lol Wow, that is a really furry creature. Great capture!

What a vibrant choice of colors -made by Nature ! I want to reach out and tenderly caress this little furry fuzzy somebody...
Sadly enough, the caterpillars in our region are "naked" rather then furry, which does not really convince to touch them :((

Oh boy, niffty looking critter. Clever caterpiller, a pretty fuzzy coat and swimish bug squishers go all soft and admire the charming colors and design of this future moth or butterfly. Wonder what that fashion statement will look like.

This is a fun one! Boy is that caterpillar hairy! The better to capture water droplets, I guess! :)

It's pictures like these that remind me how much of life I take for granted. Thank you for connecting me to the caterpillar, leaf, dewdrops, etc. once again.
