Five-spot burnet moth caterpillar

More spots than five

At this stage it has more than five spots

The five-spot burnet moth is very attractive – red spots on black.

But then so also is its caterpillar.

I found this specimen when I was looking for strawberries, and was delighted to be able to identify it.
