Moth and caterpillar - Arctia caja

Moth and caterpillar - Arctia caja
Elkton, Douglas County, Oregon, USA
July 12, 2010
A non-stop eating machine, I found this caterpillar gorging on Bracken fern. Several days later, it wrapped itself in fern leaves. On August 15, the moth in the accompanying image emerged.
