Caterpillar #2

caterpillar2b

This is the caterpillar I mentioned 2 days ago that I was going to write about. It was looping across a sidewalk when I first saw it. It was one of those geometrid caterpillars. I brought it in to film it like the previous one. But once inside, it refused to loop; instead, every time I tried to coax it into moving, it assumed various silly positions, pretending to be some inanimate numeral or a punctuation mark.

Here it is trying to make me think it was a quotation mark, I believe.

Eventually I gave up and released it.
