Eggar moth caterpillar. Close-up of the larva of an Eggar moth (family Lasiocampidae) on its silk nest. There are over 2000 species of eggar moth worldwide. The larvae of some species, such as the one shown here, are known as tent caterpillars due to their habit of living in nests spun of silk (seen here). Photographed in the UK, in June.
