stinging caterpillar?

what? yeah: that's right! another scary garden danger are stinging caterpillars! the variety i am familiar with are saddleback caterpillars. i saw one, a huge beast, about 4" long, five years ago: as i approached it, it flared up, as if to strike me! i haven't seen one since til i almost stepped on two this week! this photo is the best (lame iphone camera, thank you very much!) of the one i saw today.
cute, yet nasty!
