What’s that bug
I almost stepped on this one in my backyard, just north of Atlanta, Georgia. I let it go back in the woods after I took this picture. What’s that bug? Thanks,
Adam Kirkley

Hi Adam,
This is a Hickory Horned Devil, the caterpillar of the Royal Walnut Moth. This is very early in the year for this caterpillar. We get numerous photos each year, generally in September.
