Woolly bear caterpillar

Pyrrharctia isabella


A rather adorable little caterpillar, inching along, minding its own business. I really hope it wasn't crushed by a drunken college student after I left.


The sidewalk in front of my dorm, apparently.


I wanted to pick it up and put it back among the foliage, but I was afraid of its spiky bits...
