Hairy white caterpillar with long yellow and white pencils (tufts).
Found on London plane tree in city park; took home to rear into adult moth.
The caterpillar escaped its container on my desk and started crawling all over my books. I didn't pose it on this butterfly book, I just got a lucky photo as it wandered along!
