While going for a short walk today I came across a wolly caterpillar… rather rare in my area. I took a look… going from head to (tail?) it was tan for the first half, then black for nearly the second half, and a very narrow band of tan at the far tail end. It was a very hair/furry little thing. I don’t have much experience looking at these things… what would you make of it?

-Pine needles are turning/falling later than usual.
-Weeds continuing to flower/grow
-Mosquitoes were terrible last week. Worst I can remember for end of September.
-Yellow jackets went away early this year (thank goodness)
-Extremely heavy dews each night
-Considerable lack of acorns this year
