As we were walking on the boardwalk, we saw a caterpillar walking on the railing. I hadn't seen one quite like it, and thought perhaps if I took a photo of it I would be able to identify it when we returned home. The identification is going to take me a little longer to do I think. A few weeks back I took a photo of a caterpillar when we were at a different wildlife refuge. It is one that is commonly seen, and probably the first kind of caterpillar I remember seeing when I was a child.
This is the Woolly Bear Caterpillar (isia isabella or pyrrharctia isabella) which will turn into the Isabella Moth.
For now I'll leave this one unnamed.
Thought for today: Everyone needs to make time to be still, to listen, and to look. Quiet introspection is an important part of living.
