Default Insect on the plant.

While moving in the garden in my farm house in Lonavla I found this insect on the leaf. The colors were beautiful. I was told by my gardner not to touch it. For its defence it releases a liquid by which you fell echie all the time. Thanks for viewing.
Camera 60D, Lens Sigma 105mm micro. ISO160, f/8, shutter 1/50sec on the tripod.

This is a closeup of the face of the insect which I took using the extension box.

That looks very similar to the saddle back caterpillars we have here. Even the slightest touch on those spines and you will start to sting and itch.
