Today I was mowing the grass and came upon this lovely caterpillar.  Doug looked it up and found out that it is probably a Luna moth caterpillar.

Very cool! I'm glad it escaped the blades of the lawn mower!

It's a very interesting type of caterpillar/moth and I didn't have a chance to go into the details on my post, but apparently when it becomes a moth it only lives for 5 days and it spends the entire time mating so it doesn't even have a mouth. All business and no pleasure I guess!
