Penguin caterpillars

These were the guys that were all over our campsite last weekend. (Not my photo, mine were all blurry.) See what's on their backs? - Teeny tiny penguins! I was amazed. Every one of those bazillion tent caterpillars at our campsite had a row of teeny-tiny penguins marching down its back.

Nature and God's many wonders never stop to amaze me. This is really something special. Lots of penguins on the back of a short lived, transforming caterpillar.
