Orange and Black Caterpillar

 These caterpillars remind me of Fall with their orange and black colors. Almost like a Halloween caterpillar :)
I think this is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar

He's so cool! It's even 55 here this morning. So looking forward to cooler days.

Yes, yesterday and today both. I think it's going to turn hot again later in the week, but those days are getting fewer now. I suspect my hot days are over for this year since I'll be in the Rockies for ten days. I suspect after I get back, SW Virginia will be fully engaged in fall.

Great photo. I think he's a milkweed tussock caterpillar. I've been seeing them on milkweed lately.

The colors are perfect for Halloween. Very impressive catepillar!

I'm a bit sad that summer has gone so quickly. It's definitely been one interesting year for weather - though I do look forward to the fall colors - like in this purty catepillar!

Another wonderful photo! It certainly does feel like fall in the Chicago area after a VERY hot, steamy summer. Yes, very autumn like colors on the Milkweed Tussock Caterpillar you so beautifully photographed. Wishing you a delightful holiday weekend.

Were these caterpillars kibitzing? I hope that dark one is not forecasting a hard winter ahead!

Yes, he is like a Halloween caterpillar, but soon he'll be an autumnal butterfly.
It's starting to turn cold here too, especially after sunset. I'm trying to hold out on putting on the heating till end of september!
