18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Caterpillar Time!

Just a silly photo. The Spotted Tussock Moth has a season every year when all of their caterpillar babies are everywhere, and this photo was during that time of year. These caterpillars are black and yellow and known as Woolly Bears. My son picked one up to look at it and it started crawling up his arm. When it got to his shoulder I took this picture.
