Never in a rush;

Familiar brown and black –

Autumn visitor.

A regular visitor in the Fall to our garden – the Woolly Caterpillar!

I noticed these two over a week ago.

Fascinating for me always are their colours and the bristly, yet soft texture of their “woollyness.”

The next day I spied another woolly caterpillar, but this one was ambling along on our driveway, and since I was headed for town, I didn’t want to endanger this little one.

I gently picked it up to move it to a safer spot.  It immediately went into protective mode….all curled up into a woolly ball.  🙂
