Default Saddleback caterpillar

I was getting the grass cut around the house, reach down around a crepe myrtle to pull off some limb growing at the bottom where it goes in the ground. And got lit up i am telling ya. I did not have a clue what just got me in two places on the back of my hand. Then i found the little dude and looked him up. And there was a pic of the bad boy. Anyone else ever get the little spines/hairs sting them??

I felt like i was still getting stung and they was nothing there, i almost broke my hands pushing them into my paints as hard as i could. It was actually little spines.

They are badass little bastards.

A coworker's son had one crawl across his neck and he went in to anaphylactic shock and had to rushed to the hospital.

Got it hard by them trimming some scrub oaks one fall, what I later found out is a common plant to find them on. I try to avoid contact with oak limbs and leaves this time of year if possible. Felt like someone pressing a lit cigarette into my hand. Bastages I tell you!

Never been stung by one but have heard they hurt like crazy. I saw a caterpillar this morning that I don't remember ever seeing. It was bright red and smooth looking. Not sure what it was.
