I just came in from the garden and found a catepillar 
on my chives.  
It's about 1" long, has a bright red/orange head the 
body is bright 
yellow. It has 2 hairy antennae coming out of the head 
and near the 
back end is another black hairy spike.  Before the 
spike at the 
back are 3 reddish orange "bumps", preceding those are 
4 yellow 
"bumps". This catepillar is what I consider hairy, but 
not like a 
wooly bear.

Does anyone know what this is?  Btw, I live in zone 5 
in Indiana.
