Woolly bears everywhere today! You know, though, I have never seen them anywhere but on the ground, usually inching their way toward the nearest road. It's like they've got a death wish. I've actually turned my fair share of woolly bear around in the hopes of saving it from getting squished, but the fool things always seem to turn back around and head for the road. Anyway, I did a double-take when I saw this one and immediately thought it was trying to camouflage itself, haha. The further I walked, the more woolly bears I saw like this.
Hmmm. you know what they say about the woolly bear and its bands - I wonder if there's some folklore about them breaking pattern and perching well above ground. Maybe they're all getting ready to turn themselves into moths. Interesting.
