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.


RE: New visitor

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.
