A Tussock Moth caterpillar, I think. Saw one once before. This one was a wee baby crawling on my oxidized old gas grill (not in use!).

Had the 35mm + 20mm extension tubes on, diffused flash plus sunlight.

PP - rotated slightly, cropped, dupe layer (lighten, reduce contrast, Gaussian blur) - erased caterpillar - flattened), Nik Color Efex (tonal contrast on caterpillar, modern film Ektachrome 64 (I think)), reduced saturation on cyan/green, healed some dust spots, resized, Nik Sharpen, added border.
