Hi Majka, you have caught this image of the caterpillar very well. Good details and colours too. Thank you,
Thank you for posting this Moth (also known as Pale Tussock I've just discovered). My children and I found one of these the other day 'strolling' down the road, literally. I didn't have my camera, and also couldn't find any ID in my book when I returned home and still can't with it's full name.
Not sure if they belong in South East England, but we're finding all sorts in the UK at the moment that doesn't belong here due to the climate changing so rapidly.
Your image could have been slightly sharper but it is an excellent source of ID and has helped me a lot.
Thank you for posting.

Hello Majka !
This is a very beautiful hairy caterpillar, I have never seen it before ! I really like its color and its shape. It's nice to see it in its natural environment. Well done !

You've got a beautiful sharp shot of this interesting caterpillar. Amazing pattern and colour!
Very nice shot. The colours seems to be a little bit unnatural - maybe it's a good idea to change the white balance?
