Odd Little Caterpillars
I found this little character carrying its cocoon across the siding on our garage.
My oldest son and I observed it for a short time, then left it alone.
The next week, I discovered the cocoon on the garage again, only this time it was anchored in place by a sticky, silky substance, and the caterpillar was hidden inside. I soon discovered dozens more cocoons on the branches of our Colorado Blue Spruce tree, which is right next to the garage.
Time will reveal what type of moth will emerge from the cocoons. I hope to document them as they enter the world.
