Pale Tussock Moth Caterpillars

Amongst the now Autumn tinted debris of summer, colourful Pale Tussock Moth Caterpillars look alien. They're found in the forest between July and October, and are fond of Oak and Birch leafs, both of which are currently abundant throughout wood and heath. It's easy to become complacent, overlooking the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, seeing creatures like this serve to remind us how far out our world is.
