Little caterpillar, da da dee da da.... Can't get that song out of my head. This little orange caterpillar is finally on his way. It sure better hurry since fall is here to stay.
Going to decorate for Halloween today. Found this little ginger guy in my indian corn.
He is pretty furry. Asps are furry and have a powerful sting so I'm not touching it just in case.
Aren't you glad you stopped by today?
And for a real scare, here is a cowkiller. A little over an inch long, this furry bug has armor. The reason I know this is that when the kids were in school, they had to turn in a bug collection for a school project. As we tried to push a pin through one, it wouldn't hardly pierce the shell and it let out a banshee scream - (buzz?). We let it go after that.
Anyway, in spring, they are tiny ant-like things and by the end of summer they are this big. And fast. This is the best shot I could get after chasing it around. One of my kids was stung by a tiny one and it was painful, so I'd imagine the big ones HURT. Any volunteers? I don't know if they could really kill a cow, but wouldn't want to get stung by one. They are quite common at the farm, hurriedly going on their way.
