Tussock Moth Caterpillar…

Found this fellow last Saturday, I have to admit that in all my years, I don’t remember ever seeing one of these fellows before?  It is actually very pretty…

I found the following information on this website:   http://pets.squidoo.com/caterpillar-identification

“These cool-looking caterpillars produce a quite plain and inconspicuous moth. They eat almost anything, including a number of decorative trees like hawthorn that cities tend to plant along roads and in plazas. Tussock moth caterpillars get their name from the little tufts of fur along their backs; apparently these are called “tussocks” in some parts of the world.”
