More critters (and other stuff) in the road

It seems like the road is alive with caterpillars these days. Today I found four of the brown fuzzy ones and one that was yellow with black and white tufts (I’ve seen these a number of times before). Alas, all my attempts to figure out what they are going to be has been fruitless. The id site I’ve been using comes up empty. Here are a few more of my anonymous friends. If you have any ideas as to what they are, let me know.

These brown ones scurry across the road at break-neck speed. If caterpillars could gallop, these would be doing it.

This one is amazingly elegant with its black and white tufts.

More fall leaves, these being aspens.

And in case you were wondering where the holiday gathering was….

Happy Labor Day!

    After some further research, the fuzzy brown caterpillar looks like some photos I found of a lined tiger moth (Phrogmatobia lineata) and the yellow one with tufts looks like it may be a banded tussock moth (Halysidota tessellaris). Check them out and see what you think.
