Look at the pretty (Nasty) caterpiller I found.

A cup moth I believe 

Found it while photographing orchids for website on a Eucalyptus 

Crikey IPHONE cameras are great these days.

The original photo is here

The little orange sea urchine spines only pop up when disturbed.

Seems there are differnt species

    We used to call them ‘spit fires’ when I was a kid. The odd one would fall out of the eucalyptus trees at primary school. One would hope it never fell on you. Apparently the little ‘flowers’ front and back stung with a searing heat, hence the name ‘spit fire’.
