Hey Jim, what an excellent image! I was looking for contact information on your page but was unable to find anything. I was wondering if I could use this image for educational use in the classroom, provided of course I credit you? If that would be ok, I'd greatly appreciate the permission! My email is on my profile page.

 
Hello widowman10
You have my permission to use this caterpillar photo for your educational use in the classroom.
Best regards - Jim
