photographing and learning about wildlife
Found in Western NY, on a tent after camping trip. The coral shaped spines deliver quite a nasty sting.
Please add to and join my mission:
it's actually on the screened top of a tent that was getting taken down. Couldn't have asked for a better background for it to be on. And no, we did not put it there. I tried to move it off the tent after snapping the photos and found out really fast that it should not be touched. LOLOL Lesson learned! (hand felt like it was on fire for about a half an hour).
Interesting little guy!
Excellent sharp photo. What is it standing on?
Thank you Kristen!!!
