The caterpillar is black and orange at first, later becoming green with black rings and yellow,red & white spots. The commonest food plant is heather but feeds on a huge range of other plants.

What a wonderful and beautiful thing and a very clear shot too.That color is like sun filled florescent emerald. To think it changes from black and orange is just hard to imagine. Nature sometimes just goes "on a roll."

@Jason Kravitz: ha that wood have been a surreal sight - you can only assume that Lewis Carroll was smoking some wacky baccy from a hookah when he wrote 'Alice'
brilliant closeup of a really beautiful caterpillar! i hope his beauty does not hide his evil intentions ...
