Wildlife Sighting

I think it is Acronicta americana, the American dagger moth caterpillar or maybe not?!

Claude discovered this little guy yesterday.  I've seen snapping turtles here before, but never a painted one.  Did you know that painted turtle lived 15 million years ago and can live up to 55 years.  This species knows how to survive!

I'll be on the lookout for more wildlife!
