wooly bear season

these fuzzy fellows never fail to delight small fingers!
we really took this one off course...
found on a sidewalk blocks away, it was giggled all the way home.

it is hoped that it found a suitable place to live in our back yard;
 a quick google revealed that these little furries are isabella tiger moth caterpillars...
wouldn't it be so fun and educational to see
the transformation from cocoon to moth in the spring?
we could investigate life cycles, biodiversity, etc., etc...
but truthfully, we just want more tickley caterpillars, and you need the moths for that.
