There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.

R. Buckminster Fuller

By looking at this caterpillar you would never guess that it can bring on an allergic reaction when touched by humans. This is a White Hickory Tussock Moth Caterpillar. I took a photo of this one while camping near Grandfather Mountain near Boone North Carolina. He is a beauty and stands out fantastically against the green and red leaf.
