Came across this colourful and hirsute little chap whilst wandering the trails and I do believe it’s known as a “Yellow Woolly Bear” caterpillar – Ursus Felix Merino. If it’s not, it should be. After all, it is yellow, woolly and a caterpillar.
But I digress. I was trying to decide at which end the pretty smile was and examined the wee beastie at great length. I finally decided that the end showing was the visage, due to the rather large hole in the leaf – right under it. If not, you are gazing with appreciative awe at a catty’s bum. Oh, well. Them’s the brakes.
