Found this bug in our vegetable garden. The pain from the sting from this critter didn’t last very long. I sent the photo to a good friend of mine in Canada and he emailed your web site to me. Checked out your site and didn’t see it listed. It’s very beautiful I think and I though you may be interested. We live in central Virginia. I looks somewhat like the Saddleback’s I’ve seen on your web site. Do you know what it is?

Hi Bert and Cheryl,
This is a Saddleback Caterpillar and they do sting.
