Signs of Spring: Fuzzy Caterpillar


Photo Originally Taken on February 1, 2014.

Keeping with the theme of moving away from the winter season–especially with the amount of snow we are supposed to get here in PA these next couple of days–I decided to post a picture of this fuzzy caterpillar. I have this little guy at a home I recently visited. I recently found out that these types of caterpillars are known as “Woolly Bear Caterpillars,” which is rumored to predict winter weather.

    AnonymousWoolly bears! They were all over the school playground in the fall. There were also these fuzzy white ones (can’t remember what they’re called) and they caused rashes. So the kids knew they could touch the woolly bears (poor woolly bears for that one!) but they couldn’t touch the creepy white ones.
    I wish I had taken photos of them!ReplyCancel

      AnonymousI wonder what those fuzzy white ones where, I can’t remember ever seeing or hearing about them before. I may have to Google them to see what they look like, haha. I was really surprised to see this one, but I’m hoping it means spring may be coming. Maybe? Fingers crossed!ReplyCancel

    AnonymousI am not a bug person, but these caterpillars look less like bugs and more like, well, fuzzy bears. And I hope they mean spring is close, cuz I am soooo done with winter! Bring on the sun! Love your photos! You can take a simple subject and make it look amazing! Talent envy! Stopping by from #SITSBlogging.ReplyCancel

      AnonymousI think I may actually have a bit of a bug phobia, but caterpillars are generally okay with me–especially this kind. They also remind me of my childhood because I used to see them all the time around my old house. But yeah, fingers crossed it’s a sign of spring! Thank you for your compliments, Geri, I hope you stop by again soon!ReplyCancel

    AnonymousI love these little guys! Where I live we typically see them in Fall. Some people believe that their colors signify how bad or good winter will be.ReplyCancel

      AnonymousThey’re so cute and fuzzy, I think that’s why I don’t have a problem with them as much as other insects! I have a slight obsession with soft, fuzzy things though (if you go to a clothes store with me, you’ll see what I mean, haha). Thank you for commenting!ReplyCancel
