Taken at the Creeply Crawly event at Warnham on Saturday was this Indian Owl Moth caterpillar in the last instar prior to pupal stage. A very large yellowish striking looking caterpillar and yes I think it did giggle as it walked over my hand.

Only My Opinion

Is a caterpillar ticklish?
Well, it's my belief
That he giggles
As he wiggles
Across a hairy leaf!

Looks like a rather cheeky caterpillar peeping at you from behind the stem. A very good moment, well captured.
