Yellow Woolly Bear Caterpillar – Spilosoma virginica

Located this spiky fellow at White Rock lake while shooting the wood duck. This Yellow Woolly Bear Caterpillar is light yellow in color, and is a larva of the Virginia Tiger Moth. I pulled a porcupine composition for it — just head in focused with burred out spikes. What do you think?
