AshishNimkar,Thanks for the ID.
Ceherzog,Yes, it´s on a Palm inflorescence !
Caterpillar is of Lymantriidae family moth. Moths are not spectacular compared to this caterpillar stage.
I'd guess it's on a Palm inflorescence? What a wonderful caterpillar...maybe a tussock moth? Just a wild guess. Super shots!!!
Excellent shot! It's head looks a bit like a ladybird :-)
