Found these cute fellow on a milkweed plant today. It's a Milkweed Tussock Moth. Too bad is wasn't a monarch, but I'll keep looking.

These little caterpillars remind me of Pekingese dogs, or maybe it's Shih tzus, guess it's all that fur! They definitely are cute fellows.

That's so funny, they do look like Pekingese. I don't know that I've ever seen the moth, but according to the Internet, they are just plain silver winged, but their body is orange with black spots.
