Well. It seems that our yard has become a hotbed of woolly worm climate protestors.
Bob found this guy when he went out to walk the dog the other day. By the time I got outside with the camera, he’d started to curl up:
He looks exactly like a regular woolly worm, but he has no brown segments. This, according to the traditional method of woolly worm winter weather prediction, means a really bad winter. But wait. Once he curled up completely, we could see that he had red stripes hidden in his fur:
So, clearly, he is an impostor, a Hypercompe scribonia, and not a Pyrrharctia isabella, and so cannot be relied upon for an accurate winter weather prediction.
