Caterpillar - Painted Pine Moth
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Painted pine moths are Tussock Moths and they belong to the Family Lymantridae.|
Tussock Moths are native Australian species that have adapted to feed on a wide range of exotic plants. These caterpillars have infested a water lily plant and chopping away at the plant.
The caterpillar is very active and was on the move while I was photographing it.
