Yellow Woolly Bear Caterpillar

Yellow Woolly Bear Caterpillar

Folklore holds that the relative amounts of brown (in this case yellow) and black on the skin of a Woolly Bear caterpillar (commonly abundant in the fall) are an indication of the severity of the coming winter. It is believed that if a Woolly Bear caterpillar’s brown stripe is thick, the winter weather will be mild and if the brown stripe is narrow, the winter will be severe. (Wikipedia)

Maybe our winter won’t be the coldest place on earth this year.
