This was crawling on the sidewalk and inching along and appeared to be dragging the ”salad” behind it…sort of an insect Carmen Miranda …any ideas? It was about 3~4 inches long…
Just curious!

Hi Don,
This is a Bagworm, a caterpillar in the family Psychidae.  We believe it is an Evergreen Bagworm,
Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis, based on photos posted to bugGuide.
