WASHINGTON -- Is this a case of really good Photoshop, or did a man in Washington state actually find a caterpillar with the image of a human face on its back?

Robert Palmer says the picture he took is no trick. He discovered the bug in his barn a few weeks back.

His first instinct was to crush it with his cane, but he decided it looked so unusual, he had to show it off.

Palmer says he's been sending the picture to various wildlife experts but so far hasn't been able to figure out what kind of caterpillar it is.
