Animal of the Day - 4.8.2011







I saw this little inchworm bungee jumping (silk strand jumping?) from a car port last night. It was blowing around in the wind like crazy. Unfortunately it fell down before I could get a picture of it in the air, so I got these instead. After a while of watching it walk around I got a leaf for it to crawl on (so I could transport it to safety), once it got on the leaf it just relaxed and stayed there for a while.

  7. >Unfortunately it fell down

    I feel bad for them when they fall down.

    I used to keep such inchworms as pets. Watching them eat and crawl is pretty fun.

  8. That last pic is great - I bet from a few feet it'd be almost impossible to spot that little fella.
