Photo of the Day – Caterpillar and a Snake

Saw this guy while we were out hiking and geocaching yesterday in Charlotte, NC.  Seems to be a Polyphemus Moth Caterpillar according to What’s That Bug.  We  spotted him while walking down the path , and while walking back my wife quickly throws of the “mom arm”… As soon as she did I knew what it was.

This guy was coming across the path in front of us.  We stopped and watched him for a minute and I was able to get a photo with my phone.  He was in no hurry, but as soon as he was almost across the path, he was almost taken out by a biker.  No worries, he make it out ok.
