Woolly Bear Newsletter



Logan sent me this shot of the beautiful moth that is the adult form of the pretty and fascinating woolly bear caterpillar. Legend has it that the larva of this moth can help predict the weather. The myth is that the reddish bands on the woolly bear can actually help you determine how severe the weather will be. The wider the bands, the more severe the upcoming winter will be. Here's some detailed information about an insect worth protecting and enjoying.
