A small, very fuzzy, bright yellow caterpillar with long black tufts. (two behind the head, two in the middle and one at the tail).
Lives on and eats the leaves of various trees, including: alders, ashes, birches, elms, hickories, maples, oaks, poplars, walnuts, and willows.
I found this little caterpillar while out looking for subjects to photograph. It was resting on the trunk of a tree and didn't move very much the entire time I was photographing it.
