I saw this caterpillar (and lots of his buddies) chewing on a milkweed leaf and wondered what was it.
After looking in my Audubon Society Butterfly identification manual ( I highly recommend this book)
I found the little hairy critter. EUCHAETES EGLE Milkweed Tiger Moth.
The photo of the caterpillar is not very good ... I GOT BOTH PHOTOS from the website www.butterfliesandmoths.org.
The caterpillar was so fuzzy and interesting I had hoped for a beautiful butterfly, but as you can see its a grey Milkweed Moth.
