Furry Freight Train

Here's another insect denizen of Oscar Scherer State Park. These caterpillars were all over the place. It must be their time of year or something. And they were all headed someplace. It was rare to see one standing still. They were crawling across the ground or up sticks, looking for food or a place to turn into a moth, perhaps. People were saying they would sting if you touched them, or at least irritate your skin, but I'm not sure. I should do some research now that I'm back at my computer.
