Polyphemus Moth Caterpillar ~ I found this big interesting caterpillar on a small scub oak at Castlewood Canyon State Park in Colorado.  I photographed it inches from the ground, and only later found it in the field guide to know what it would become someday, a Poyphemus Moth, one of the large silkmoths.  I hope to see one one day.
