Flying Caterpillar (2005-07-12)

Have you ever seen a flying caterpillar?  I spotted one right in front of me the other day!  It was wriggling and dancing weightlessly in midair.  I quickly whipped out my camera to take its picture, but the result isn't very good.  It doesn't show the gossamer strand of silk by which it was dangling from a tree above. 

And you thought there's really such a thing as a flying caterpillar?  Not in Tokyo!
