Tiny Hairy Worm

Photographs

Aburrá Valley, South America. A tiny, hairy worm walks on the leaves of a bougainvillea.

When it got to the tip of the leaf, this little worm let itself drop using a sticky thread, just like spiders do. I didn't know they could do that.

Maybe it is a caterpillar, not a worm.
