Woolly Worm (Pyrrharctia isabella) with one black segment

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the black and brown stripes on the woolly worm are traditional indicators of the coming winter weather: the more brown, the milder the winter. This woolly worm is predicting a very mild winter. Or maybe he is a climate activist.

    Pterosaur, indeed!. There are photos at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrrharctia_isabella – they’re kind of ordinary-looking moths. I think moth caterpillars are usually furry or spiky (and more photogenic) and butterfly ones are smooth. In general.
