Neat nibbler

Sprinkled with spines and sporting black-tipped head prongs, this Hickory horned devil caterpillar (Citheronia regalis) is one funky-looking bug — and fairly good sized, at 4+ inches in length.

As overloaded with appendages as it was, it seemed to be a tidy eater, as seen by the precision chunk cut from the sumac leaf to its right.
