Later the same day I saw what I thought was a little fabric pom pom on a leaf, but when I looked closer it was this thing on the right. I have no idea what it is, but it is now also resting in a mason jar and I will let you know if it does anything interesting.
So wow finding two interesting things in one day you say.. well actually I went to Presqu'ile provincial park today as well and as I was hiking this massive caterpillar began crossing the road. He was going remarkably fast and when I tried to help him cross the street (didn't want him to get squished) he got all vigorous and wiggly, not to mention he had what appears to be a spike on his bum. Anyway, I like my caterpillars slow and docile so I left this one alone to his unnaturally rapid walking. I did get this picture though. I am not sure but I think he is a Horn worm.
