photographing and learning about wildlife
The caterpillars had orange white and black stripes down the length of their bodies and had orange hair(?) on the sides. The insects on the right in photo 2 and 3 I believe are shedded skins. However, i am unsure.
They were on a silky mass in a shrub in rural coastland.
I was not present at the sighting, my mother took the photos so I couldn't give great details, apologies.
