Creepy caterpillars on the capers

Bright fuzzy caterpillars on the caper bush? OK . . . Bon appetit, little critters!
See those serious thorns? Ouch! I never cut caper branches without strong gloves.
And you have to keep after them all the time or they overrun everything. They seem to thrive in old stone walls.
To see what animals other bloggers posted this weekend check in at Camera-Critters blog.

Which are more nasty: the capers or the caterpillars? In the Netherlands we have sometimes very hairy caterpillars, which are better not touched, because they cause a nasty rash on your skin.

A caper plant! We love capers but had no idea what the plant they came from looked like!

Hi Dina
We have cat trouble over at my post (Tovah"s fine) but the cat ladys gone mad! Altadena Hiker is keeping her cat hostage (stay tuned: if not now, the post is expected later).

Way to behind to comment on all what has happened - but I do have to say I loved the liqour (remember drinking one too many in a cloister in Sinai, if I remember right.
Glorious skywatch and nice caterpillars! Cheers, Klaus
