a nice spiky one ! have seen a very similar caterpillar posted somewhere recently, and it was identified .. try to remember where ?!
will update the note in case I find it
anyway, it should be in the book "Caterpillars of Eastern North America"
OUCH! that would not be one that i would want to touch. Nice and sharp detail with dew drops.

Wow, what an extraordinary macro, Scott.
Focus and exposure are perfect.
That glistening black contrasts well with the yellow markings.
Great work and thanks for sharing.
A warm welcome to TN. : )

He is a dark prickly looking fellow Scott. Very good clarity and colours. Nice and sharp too. Well done,

Nice shot! Very nice pose, good composition, good exposure and depth of field, exposure is pretty much perfect. Slight weirdness, greenish highlights, not sure what could cause that.
I second it as being Peigler's Oakworm, Anisota peigleri.
