Hickory Tussock Moth
(Caterpillar is the white one below)
they’re such a striking moth.. love the furry caterpillars too (frass and all) 🙂
The cat photo was from last fall. I’d found a section of trail, perhaps four or five yards, with all these caterpillars stuffed in it, couldn’t resist collecting them up and taking a photo.
I’ve never seen one of these, but we should have them. Maybe this year.
They were very abundant at our house here in eastern Ontario, Marvin, but I don’t recall getting any at my parents’ old house in south-central Ontario. Could be that they’re regionally patchy in your area, too.
