Or something else?
Found on the trunk of an oak, there was only one....
I did touch it, trying to get it to crawl on my hand... it was not interested... no sting either.

|It does look like Hemileuca maia, the Buck Moth. They vary of course, but I found a photo which is much the same stage as yours. It seems you should have been stung.|

|Thanks for the response... Even if it was not an interesting alternative...|
Those spines are certainly noteworthy, reckon the sting woulda been something worth writing home about...
