Yesterday I was asked if the "wooly worm" was a worm or a caterpillar...
So I looked it up....
the wooly worm is actually a caterpillar...
it does the usual things every good caterpillar does and then turns into this..
the Isabella Tiger Moth
..Go For Your Dreams..

I knew it was a caterpillar, but like the make "wooly warm" better. Saw one yesterday on my hike on a Nature Trail. They are very net looking.ReplyDelete
The transformation is one of the events children love. One of the first things I remember learning in school.ReplyDelete
But I did not know the Wooly Worm was a Caterpillar.
I keep seeing them here....some all black. A bad omen for the winter.ReplyDelete
Interesting...I never knew that.ReplyDelete
I keep hearing we will have a mild winter here in Michigan.
So far we have been above average temps and I love it!
Seeing a lot of woolies.
