Damn Mother Nature, U Trippy: See-Thru Jewel Caterpillar

May 7, 2012


This is a Jewel Caterpillar spotted by naturalist (NOT naturist) and photographer Gerardo Aizpuru near Cancun, Mexico. No word if it tastes like a gummi worm, but I'll let you take the first bite.

Photo take in a mangrove area , found this Stoning translucent caterpillar lay on a Red Mangrove tree leaf this morning early. Just can believe there is some species like this around the world. looks like made of glass whit small red mushroom inside every pic. about 3 cm long.

Glass with a small mushroom inside? That sounds like a pipe I used to own. Speaking of -- I've actually smoked with a caterpillar before: Absolum from Alice in Wonderland! Back me up, bro. "I've never met you in my life." Come on, man -- we got high and watched all those flowers sing!

Hit the jump for several more worthwhile shots including the fuzzy moth it eventually becomes.





Thanks to lil co, who metamorphosed herself into a beautiful little butterfly and flies around in the sunshine all day imagining what shapes the clouds are making. That -- wow. You might be the most cheerful person to ever exist.

    I can't tell where it is head is.

  • I think he's trying to use an apostrophe to show that the head belongs to 'it'.
