Woolly Bear Caterpillars on the Beach

We took a long walk on the beach a few weeks ago—leaping over a gully and not wanting to leap back the other way meant for a much longer walk that we’d planned—and we encountered scores of woolly bear caterpillars along the way. They were on the beach. On the road. On pathways. Everywhere.

I shot a video of one of them walking toward me on the beach.
