Comfort food

There’s nothing better on a blistery autumn day than a properly made pot pie.

(or a woolly bear caterpillar)


Common folklore says the severity of the coming winter can be predicted by the amount of black on a woolly bear. It’s believed that if a woolly bear caterpillar’s brown stripe is thick, the winter weather will be mild and if narrow, the winter will be severe.

I’m guessing none of that mattered to the mantis.

  1. Folks here in my part of KY are all in a tither because we’ve been seeing woolly bears that are all black. I’m hoping its just a different species entirely!!!

  2. I just made chicken pot pie last night! Blustery days like in the Hundred Acre Wood. Brrrr.

    That woolly bear will be quite the meal for that mantis.
