Moved to Arthropods

Welcome to Project Noah, Kelley! Based on your common name and the overall shape of the object hanging from the twig, it seems this is the "bag" or case of the caterpillar. Bagworms are a type of moth which is an arthropod so you'll need to change the category. "Other" is used for mollusks, jellyfish, etc.
We look forward to your future spottings!
