White Marked Tussock Moth Caterpillar

Orgyia leucostigma


I spotted this small caterpillar on a branch at about eye height. It was actually his shed skin that initially caught my eye (see included picture). What a perfect time to photograph a caterpillar.


Diverse woods with nearby swamps and lakes.
