Colorful caterpillars

A cluster of cinnabar moth caterpillars are displayed in a glass jar in a pasture on a farm near Elkton in southwestern Oregon on Saturday, June 28, 2014. The caterpillars are considered beneficial because they feed on toxic ragwort plants. The caterpillars were returned to the wild after being photographed.
