A Real Angry Caterpillar Causes an Extremely Short Photo Essay
This caterpillar-looking creature caught my eye when I was visiting a waterfall in northern Okinawa, Japan. It was crawling on a wooden post that supports the stairs and handrails leading up out of the falls.
Whenever I find a new critter, I've never seen before, I like to get plenty of photos from every possible angle. That makes the process of identification a lot easier.
Well, this caterpillar didn't like the camera being pointed at him, I guess.
It was hard to decide whether it was grinning or growling when it looked at me.
But, I figured out he was a real angry caterpillar when he struck this pose.
Being this is Okinawa, that guy could know karate.
