Even this late in the season, I am still finding some interesting caterpillars around. This one was climbing up the wall of the cottage.
He got such a fright at having his picture taken, that he fell onto the ground and I was able to get this interesting one of his cute little feet.I took him and put him on a nearby bush. I love those two tufts of hair sticking out on the sides.

Glad you didn't give it a heart attack. It's so cute and clown like.

For all I know my size might have given him one Gaelyn. LOL!! I have to agree on the clown-like appearance. :)
