Fingered dagger moth (Acronicta insita Walker, 1856) enjoying morning dew at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in Prince George, British Columbia. As adults, these moths are characterized by a dagger-like pattern on their wings, but larvae of this species display vibrant orange hairs and striking black tufts. This caterpillar was found beside a trail in Forests for the World, which serves as both a demonstration forest to the university and a park to the community as a whole.
