From Head To Tail With a Grin

Red Chestnut Cerastis rubricosa caterpillar

This happy caterpillar will grow up into a noctuid moth one day. Apparently the larvae are rarely seen, feeding on various herbaceous and woody plants during the night and remaining concealed on the food plant during the day.
