Finding this guy was one of those “kid in a candy shop” moments for me. It’s one caterpillar I’ve sought out but never have found until today. And oddly enough, today I wasn’t even looking for it. I was doing yard work and noticed it laying on my oil tank. LOL

He turns into a type of Hag Moth. A pretty interesting caterpillar and a very unique and attractive moth.
