Well, I found this flower when I searched in google to find a strangest flower in our planet earth. :D I am very amazed by the beauty and the unique flower structure. This flower called Passion Flower or Passion Vine.
But when I searched more about this flower, I found a disgusting thing!!! Yikes!!! ^(*-*)^ It must be the most disgusting thing ever!!! Look at this picture :
It's a picture of Zebra Longwing (Heliconius charithonia). It feeds on Yellow Passion Flower leaves whose poison protects the caterpillar from predators. Yikes, but the good news is the ugly thing will change into the beautiful butterfly. Phew... (~_^)
But, I must admit that to think that the previous phase of that butterfly is ugly caterpillar, I had better get rid of the flower and the butterfly if I find any in my garden!!! Yikes. I won't take chance to meet that hairy nasty catterpillar. Well, about 2 weeks ago, an ugly hairy caterpillar make my hand red and itchy. And the caterpillar looks like this :
I never ever thought before, that I would touch that ugly thing. OMG!!! Just imagine, one day, you touch your back and you feel something stick on your back. You think that it just someone make fun of you by stick something on your back. When you realise that it's not a joke, the hairs of the caterpillar stuck on your skin and make your skin itchy. The worse thing is the hair stuck and broke, so you can't take it and it looks like a baby hair!!! :o
