CLOSED: When I grow up....

Kalama, WA(Zone 8b)

What will I be?
Does anyone know what kind of caterpillar I am? Will I be a beautiful butterfly some day? The lady who took my picture thinks I'm so pretty and 'cute', she can't imagine I'd grow up to be anything less than a beautiful butterfly.

Milkweed tussock moth is the closest I can find http://www.emmajesty.com/htmldocs/pagehtmls/batlasmoths.html

That looks pretty close Poppysue. Maybe the male and female look a little different? But a moth? That pretty little guy will be a moth? Must be one of the prettier ones!
Thank you. Joy

I found a picture of the Milkweed tussock moth. Not nearly as pretty as he is now! http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/distr/lepid/moths/ky/1892.htm
