I normally do not post photos of bugs or insects, as I surmise that many people, such as my wife, would find them creepy and repulsive. Butterflies are an exception, of course, as people are attracted to their beauty. I will make another exception for this caterpillar, however, due to its distinctive color and patterns.

Nasty, but I love the colours!
A friend of mine spent his vacation on Costa Rica and took a lot of nice pictures.

This is a colorful little fellow. I hope he isn't poisonous like the one we saw on the hiking adventure we took.

Bugs creep me out but I also find them infinitely fascinating! Go post them as you find them. This one is very interesting. Fantastic shot too!

Thank you for sharing the link to your friend's Costa Rica photos. They are great. It looks like he had a wonderful vacation.

You should check out the link for JM, one of the people listed in the followers section of this blog, and click on his travel site. He also has excellent photos from a trip to Costa Rica. His sloth photo is the best I have ever seen.

Since you are from Sweden and JM is from Portugal, I might mention that the Costa Rica tourist authorities are making a big push to try to increase tourism from Europe due to the economic conditions in the US, the source of the vast majority of tourists.

I should also mention that I had a delightful visit to Sweden a few years ago. My late mother's grandparents emigrated to the U.S. from Sweden a little over 100 years ago, settling in Worcester, Massachusetts, a town that at that time had a Swedish language newspaper.

Very pretty! Don't be shy about posting insect photos...they are creepy in person perhaps, but so interesting to study in a photo!

What a beautiful caterpillar. Tell your lovely wife to have an extra glass of pink champagne in Eze and she'll not notice the creepy crawlies!
