Living a beautiful life at OakMeadows
Florence..You are linked in correctly now. No problem. It is a caterpillar but it will take some searching to see if I can find out what species. from Bugguide-Identifying a caterpillar can be a challenge. There are many insects that start life as larvae, and they do not all turn into butterflies or moths. Insects like craneflies, sawflies and beetles can have very caterpillar-like larvae.
It appears to be some kind of caterpillar dressed up for a parade.
Fascinating shots! But I don´t know what this is...
My gosh...creepy. I know I wouldn't be sittin' that THAT chair for a while. lol
Anni, it is a Rusty Tussock Moth caterpillar. It is a European transplant and I believe I read that it was related to the destructive Gypsy Moth.
Oh good to see you got an id Florence....
