Dear ??,
We have posted images of the stinging Flannel Moth Caterpillar,
Megalopyge lanata, several times in the past.  We are going to take this opportunity to create a new subcategory for Flannel Moth Caterpillars.  We love that your photo illustrates two different instars of this dangerous caterpillar.
