Mullein Moth Caterpillar

I was so excited when I spotted a couple of these - my favourite find so far! It is a mullein moth caterpillar. Very impressive looking - far more so than the brown moth it turns into.
This one isn't on a mullein flower but is only eating a weed so I'll be very happy to see these again on site!
