The Joy of Monsoons – Furry Caterpillar from Coorg

There is no better way to enjoy the monsoons then be in the heart of it, which in my mind is best felt in India’s Western Ghats where it pours the most to the extent of being torrential. A couple of weeks back, I was at the Kakkabe side of Coorg and was enjoying nature at its vibrant best.

Furry Caterpillar 
This photo was taken in light rain and with half my body submerged in a mountain stream. This furry caterpillar, which can give a lot of people the creeps and the famous itch, looked particularly appealing to be in its black and white and with it clinging to a small plant growing by the side of this mountain stream. And all of it freshly drenched in the monsoon rains.
