Some of the ones I have found here in Georgia, but by no means all of them...

These are spectacular! #2 is exceptional. He has great taste in both color and design! He is so pretty I'd be tempted to pick him up, but not the others. Great job!

No wonder you're screaming if you've been handling these fellows,   ;D

Anyway, great shots with impressive depth of field. Do you use focus stacking?

Later,
Johnny

Stunning images! It's hard to believe these creatures don't come from an LSD trance.
Please keep 'em coming!

Wow! Have you considered doing an identification book on Caterpillars of Georgia?

No Johnny, not focus stacked. At least I don't think so. If any, maybe the Rose Slug...

Spectacular insects.

Maybe they could be dubbed Lucrezia Borgia bugs. (Beautiful but deadly.)
