Brennan found this today...

He swears up and down it is some kind of alien life form...
...and I agreed with him.

It has a FACE! [scaredy]

What is that thing supposed to be? [Big Grin] [scaredy] [Big Grin]
by afgreyparrot on September 10, 2006 10:08 AM
I don't know!

Brennan found it in the driveway, and put it in the hostas! [Big Grin]

It has a big FACE! Like it's smiling!

What is it??????????

Maybe it's a scout sent out from the mothership and it wants you to follow it back. [Wink]

Looks like the prize I won at the fair today.

Rachel called a few minutes ago and said that Brennan was still wondering if a space ship was going to come back and get it! He is convinced it is an alien! (It's at Rachel's house, not here, thank God! I'd hate to think of how bad Freckles would bark if the mothership landed here.) [Big Grin]

That's what Rachel...it looks like a clown fish!

Look what I found...

Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar
Common in Kentucky...
But, it's not the same color. [nutz]

[Big Grin] That's funny..I kinda' wondered when you asked what kind of fair I went to. I thought, "is it just a Canadian thing where you win the goldfish? [dunno] " [nutz]

When I stopped at Rachel's before I went to the reunion I was in a big hurry (always late!) and she said I HAD to see THIS...and I reluctantly got out of the truck to go look at this "thing"...

Then when I saw it I was amazed...because of the face!

It must be some kind of swallowtail butterfly caterpillar, I'm thinking. [nutz]

Yep...it's a spicebush swallowtail caterpillar.

The pic you found is more the color of Brennan's alien than the pics I found.
