What is THIS?

So — full disclosure here..I hate bugs, worms, snakes, creepy/crawly things.  That means when I was working in my back yard doing some weeding and I came across this…I about died.  At first glance it looked like a big, huge caterpillar.  So I took this picture and posted it to facebook asking for help in identifying this gross, scary insect.  A lot of great comments including “some girl’s weave”!  Then common sense prevailed and I was told “it’s a bloom” on the ornamental grass.  Of course it is.  If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?  Now I think it’s kind of cool.
