Mellow Yellow Camera Critters - More Caterpillar Pics

Surprisingly the dill plant survived the first set of caterpillars that call it home...then recently two more came, and pretty much finished it off.  When they were done with nearly everything green on it they crawled away.  We caught one crawling out of the pot and placed it gently on the grass.  Later that day we found it crawling on a plastic pinwheel that had fallen over in the grass, and together we took some kinda trippy pictures of it.  This first picture I'm pretty sure is by my son (age 7 - and yes, I was impressed).

And then, an amazing thing happened.  While we were still
taking pictures of the caterpillar, a grasshopper jumped onto
the pinwheel right next to him!   He stayed just long 
enough for us to take a couple shots.

  2. Fascinating shot! I love it! I've never seen a caterpillar like that (in person)!
