Photo: Caterpillars, a love story

29 of 1678

Our photo of the day comes from the romantic rain forest of Ecuador.

Is it wrong to anthropomorphize caterpillars? Because it's hard to resist when it comes to the two shown in this photograph by Andreas Kay. While it may not be so much about the birds and the bees, per se, these two lovebugs are clearly gazing into one another's eyes and murmuring sweet nothings like, "you complete me." Right?
