Even He Didn't Help on Saturday!

Found this caterpillar trying to find a home in our home over the weekend. Because it is "wearing" black and gold, we thought it looked like a Steeler fan! It is actually a yellow based tussock moth caterpillar. They like milkweed among other plants. Here is a link to a site that has some wonderful pictures of all sorts of things including the tussock moth caterpillar. I'll let you explore the site because he has taken such amazing photos! Off to make tomato soup!
