This is the 9th series on tropical caterpillar. It's a black caterpillar and it's spiky. It is one of the dullest caterpillar and my camera was have trouble focusing on it due to its dull color.
Rather, I was also having trouble focusing because my hands tremble and that's why I plucked the black caterpillar and placed it on the grass. Because of the caterpillar colour and also dimming light, at times, the camera was focusing on the grass blades instead of the caterpillar.
