Son of Buzzard

After accidentally getting 'The Buzzard' wet - a tiny fur-ball popped out of his back. This is what happened next...
(The music in the background just happened to be on at the time, i like how it fits at 2.13m onwards).
Just identified this as the Rusty Tussock Vapourer Moth caterpillar, was surprisingly easy to identify seeing as there are around 3000 species of moth in the UK.
