Wooly Bear cocoon

Post  tinsoldier on Fri Mar 16, 2012 3:14 pm

I was clearing out my flower beds and I have some potted stuff that I never got planted in the fall that I had to move so that I could rake. One the side of one of those containers I spotted this odd looking thing.....

I looked it up and apparently it is a Wooly Bear cocoon!

I didn't know what a wooly caterpillar turned into so I looked it up, a isabella moth, and I've seen the isabella tiger moth in the yard!

Thanks tinsoldier!

Yeah, this mild winter is definitely making things a bit interesting. I put out all my hummingbird feeders a couple days ago as I already had both of my overwintering Swallowtails emerge. There are no flowers for them to feed at! I figure at least they could go to the hummingbird feeders if they stay in the area. I've seen butterflies go to them before. I think the Swallowtails are really going to be in trouble this year if too many of them emerge before there is a food source or leaves on their host plants for them to lay eggs.
