Nothing Says Fall Around Here Like a Wooly Bear Caterpillar

Wooly Bears usually curl up into a ball when you pick them up and they are frightened. After this Wooly Bear had been visiting for two hours or so and moved over to a McMansion ( from his starter home in the above picture ) he ceased to curl up and was quite used to us, crawling everywhere quite happily including on us. Yes he was released later on, much to his relief I am sure. The good news is that despite what the Farmer’s Almanac predicted, according to the Wooly Bear, winter will just be average this year :)

    Oh! What great photos.
    I never realized a caterpillar would relax and be comfortable with a human – now, that’s wonderful.
    I remember them from my own childhood . . . but only watched, as I was instructed to do.

    I prefer your idea about this winter . . .

    Happy Friday!

    Every one is talking about them in my neck of the woods. I have not seen a single one. I bet that is because I have not been looking. I love the shots of the little boy, your grandson? Wish I could get down close to the ground like that. Visiting from Grandmas Briefs.
