Caption: Isabella tiger moth, Pyrrharctia Isabella. Also known as woolly bears or banded woolly bears, these caterpillars have black bands at each end, and a band of reddish-brown in the middle. They overwinter in the larval stage under leaf litter,etc. Folk wisdom says if the brown bands on fall woolly bears are narrow, it means a harsh winter is coming. Wider means milder.

His middle section is bigger than the ends so that means a milder winter ;)
