The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar*

This cheerful caterpillar* is a blurry sight to see
Presented through the miracle of pin-point photography.
And though her torso’s tentative, she really doesn’t mind,
She’s clear on where she’s headed, fuzzy on what’s left behind.

  1. Other Mike, you’re a genius.

  2. Not so fuzzy this one, but still kind of cute.

  3. totally agree!

  4. It IS cute, but it isn’t a caterpillar. This is a sawfly larva. It belongs in the same order as ants, bees, and wasps. Sorry, the grizzled entomologist and teacher in me.

    I take my hat off to the photographer. That is a wonderful photo!

  5. Thanks! All these things look like caterpillars to me, so I appreciate the clarification.
