While cleaning out the southern part of the property to get ready to paint yesterday we found this little guy. We had to move it so that we didn't step on it. :oops:

Do you happen to know what that is? I found one recently, ran inside to grab my camera and it had disappeared and I couldn't find it again.

I think it's a Virginian tiger moth caterpillar (Spilosoma virginica).

You probably shouldn't touch it - some of those hairy caterpillars (many of them? most?) are stinging caterpillars. The spines can cause irritation, sometimes intense.

Sorry, Viktoria!

I thought Karma had posted them both! Great shots!

Have you found out what yours is yet? I looked through my sites, and didn't see it at all, but am sure I have :(
