I don't know what the title's supposed to mean but, for what it's worth, that looks to me like a "Cinnabar Moth" caterpillar.

Great macro work. Fine example of the 'maggot-with-a-football-jersey-on'; The Cinnabar Moth Tyria jacobaeae

Used to see these in clusters on ragwort. Ragwort is being eradicated as it poisons cattle, so this species of day-flying moth is getting scarce.
In case anyone's interested. Grin

Quote:Ragwort is being eradicated as it poisons cattle,

Nothing to do with the image but as an aside, ragwort is also toxic to horses. It' not harmful, however to sheep.
Many years ago, I used to keep a couple of horses on at a livery stable and the owner used to alternate the stock in his fields using sheep and horses. The horses generated an income and the sheep ate the ragwort as they grazed thus keeping the ground healthy.
