I checked all my books and on the internet to find out what type of caterpillar this is. And to the best of my knowledge it a Fuzzy Bear Caterpillar, which turns into the Garden Tiger Moth. This caterpillar was almost 2 inches long and was eating my tarragon plant in the garden. This little guy has very long hair and interesting tufts of hair. These caterpillars are quite common in Alberta

Hi Janice ! I found the same caterpillar a week ago, you can have a look at the picture in my gallery. theyr are really wonderful caterpillars, so hairy, and so fast ! Now i'm looking to find an adult, as they are very beautiful moths. It is a very nice shot, with excellent sharpness and details, beautiful colors, good POV and composition. very well done !

Hi Janice,
Excellent macro shot, aren't these the ones that give you a nasty rash if you touch them? Great shot, excellent details and great colours. Can't help with the ID but it looks a little like this shot that I remembered Monika posting a while ago.

Bonjour Janice
C'est une excellent Prise de vue en macro de cette belle chenille.! La composition très jolie avec de belles couleurs, ainsi que les détails. Merci pour le partage .
Au revoir et Bravo ....JP

Good macro shot Janice. Great detail on the little hairs all over it too.

Hi Janice, these are really hairy. Great details, lighting and colours. Well captured and TFS.

Hi neighbor!. Beutiful shot of the 'pillar! The details of his hair are really great. The only minor quibble is that I wish the leaf he was on wasn't so busy or in focus, though, because it distracts a bit from the great 'pillar and te detail with which you've rendered him. I'll have to keep an eye out for one of these now.

Hola Janice:
Good Shot! Es una gran macro de esta Caterpillar, o "gata peluda", como se le dice comunmente por aquì. Me gusta el contraste de colores y los largos pelos del modelo.
