One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

This is the caterpillar of some form of Tussock Moth:
Someone found it in the Dogwood Collection and I got to see it. It's just nice that animals as beautiful and curious exist and it's one of the perks of our jobs that we occasionally get to see them. You have to love the genus here: Orgy (ia). I don't know, or I'd tell you.
