I spy an inchworm hanging by a thread! Some caterpillars that munch on leaves can create a simple web and hang from it if they sense danger (source). They are hard to spot this way. I usually run right into them since I am trying to walk under the shade of trees.


I arrogantly thought, when I first saw these little worms hanging, they must have lost their way. But I should have known better from having read INCH BY INCH (Amazon affiliate link) by Lio Lionni, a great book about how an inchworm outsmarts a robin!

Well, bye for now. Happy walking and watch out for those inchworms. They are everywhere!
