Maybe it’s the name…

woolly bear caterpillarWoolly Bear caterpillar. I’m not sure if it’s the name or the actual caterpillar. I just find it cute. Folklore says it can predict the weather. If it has a wide copper stripe, it is supposed to be a mild winter. Narrow copper band means a more severe winter. the copper band size really just relates to the maturity of the caterpillar. This caterpillar actually hibernates.
Cute, huh? Found this handsome devil in my backyard.
