Black spiky caterpillar - Series #9

This is the 9th series on tropical caterpillar. It's a black caterpillar and it's spiky. It is one of the dullest caterpillar and my camera was have trouble focusing on it due to its dull color.

Rather, I was also having trouble focusing because my hands tremble and that's why I plucked the black caterpillar and placed it on the grass. Because of the caterpillar colour and also dimming light, at times, the camera was focusing on the grass blades instead of the caterpillar.

The above photo is the best among the collection taken. Due to daylight fading, I have limited time to get a clear shot on the caterpillar.

The caterpillar shots make my hair stand on ends. But I love them when they become butterflies.
