    Must be the infamous "Drunker-Buttapiller"....often seen out after midnight...usually during spring break or after proms....a rare but full moon occasion not to be missed!

    Okay...next lol

    Are you all certain it is an insect? Looks more like animalhouse.

    Say, how come you know so much about this critter, Connie?? Hmmm??

    Hope you didn't try to catch it Ron, it looks like it might bite. And I bet it has a foul odor!!

    I was in the military back in the 80's when they still let 18 year old males drink. This particular variety was seen in green, brown, blue....depending on the branch of the military. And often you saw them in smaller numbers; that one is a rather large example of the Drunker-Catterpillar....luckily I've never seen a female one. They seem to just know better....either that or they are much more difficult to photograph like this. he he At least with the lights on!!
