This caterpillar joined the big bush adventure I was on recently (not sure which end is which) and must say, I much preferred it to the other creepy crawlies we came across. A while ago I posted about the Wanderer or Monarch butterfly. Well, this is it before it becomes a butterfly. Quite stunning really. I wouldn't be able to squash it like one would a pesky ordinary grub, but I wonder how many butterflies die because their caterpillar isn't as pretty??
