What's long, hairy and smells of cabbage?

Hairy caterpillar.  Fuji F10

I have noticed quite a few caterpillars around recently.   This one seemed to be very lost and was inching its way up one of the garden chairs.

The nasturtium plants in the veg plot have been savaged recently too; they appear to be a favorite food of something wriggly.

I know some caterpillars can cause irritation, I am sure some of the birds have figured out how to eat these Cabbage White guys safely though.
