Strange Fuzz . . .
Sorry, life has been too busy to blog … too busy to go out and seriously take pictures, too. However, I am still carrying my camera around everywhere I go and a few interesting things have crossed my path.
Walking down my driveway, I was admiring all the spiderwebs sparkling with dew and saw some strange “fuzz” moving around on a leaf …
I have been trying to find out what kind of creature he is … the closest picture on the internet I could find was of a banded Tussock Moth caterpillar. There is enough differences to make me have some doubts … I also found several articles about not touching them because their hairs embedded in your skin and cause rashes/irritations and some people have extreme reactions to them. He looks harmless to me. I was very tempted to touch his fur to see what he would do, but because I was in a hurry I did not … sometimes a busy/hurried life saves you from bad things ….
