Whilst watching James play soccer we discovered these interesting Woolly Caterpillars. For a change they dont bite or sting or cause grievous bodily harm. According to local folklore, the colours indicate the severity of the winter. Black means hard and red means mild. So looking at the stretched out caterpillar in the picture, the winter should start pretty hard, be mild for the rest and end on a hard note. Is this true? We dont know but we will find out.
