Woolly Bear




Soft feet crossing heat
as cars and trucks fly past them.

Oh, these bears can run!

What a great photo.

We call them "wooly worms" here and, supposedly, seeing a lot of them means that a very hard winter is ahead. It's actually a pretty creature, especially when photographed against a dark background like the pavement.

Hard to think of something like a caterpillar as "cute". But they are!

When the banded woolly worms appear around here, so do the weather forecasters. They measure the width of the bands to "predict" the mildness or harshness of the winter. We even have a town in Western NC that hosts a Woolly Worm Festival each fall.

Nina--get out of the middle of the road! I mean, taking photos for your blog is one thing, but in the middle of the road?
Great post.

Donna--my neighbors are getting used to seeing me sprawled out spanning a ditch or creeping around behind stone walls--the center-of-the-road pose is just another quirky thing about that lady with the camera.
These darn insects that insist on crawling in the most uncomfortable places! I don't have one single pair of jeans without stained knees. And I've had an ongoing case of poison ivy since May!
