Wooly Bear

DSC02785-2

This is a wooly bear caterpillar.  I grew up calling them wooly worms.  This is the larval form of the Isabella Tiger Moth.   This caterpillar, according to legend, forecasts the coming winter weather.  Again I defer to the Old Farmers Almanac, (http://www.almanac.com/content/predicting-winter-weather-woolly-bear-caterpillars), “the wider that middle brown section is (i.e., the more brown segments there are), the milder the coming winter will be. Conversely, a narrow brown band is said to predict a harsh winter. ”  So, it is the wooly worm vs the persimmon seed in weather prediction.  I am voting for the wooly worm 🙂

This probably makes us sound like horrible people, but we routinely go outside and get moths to bring in the house just so the cat will have something to chase around.

Not so hidden

This moth was sitting next to the front door….not very camouflaged.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
