Woolly Bear found at What’s That Bug? office garden
Location: Mount Washington, Los Angeles, California

We can’t believe we are approaching the 20,000 mark with postings, and we decided to do a countdown of sorts. We found this Woolly Bear that will eventually metamorphose into a Painted Tiger Moth, Arachnis picta, while weeding in the front garden. Later while walking into Elyria Canyon Park to tag Fiesta Flowers in a Vernal Stream, we noticed several smashed, dead Woolly Bears along the “dirt” Burnell path where hikers walk on a daily basis and we can only hope the dead Woolly Bears were the result of accidental stompings. We also noticed several living Woolly Bears in Elyria Canyon Park.
