I haven't seen any ducks on our local lake until yesterday. I seen one duck in the distance. It took off from the water and flew a fairly long distance down the lake. It was most interesting to watch as it flew only inches above the water the entire way. It flew so far away from me that I could barely make it out. I did notice, however, that it landed at the edge of the lake at the end of its flight.
While sitting on the bank of the lake, I noticed that a Woolly Worm had crawled up and was on the side of my shoe. I've heard stories where, children in particular, have picked them up and many needle like "fur" pieces penetrate the skin and cause a quite irritable sensation. I've picked up many of them in my lifetime and have not had such an experience (yet). I decided to take the Worm home and put it in a jar to see what type of butterfly or moth it turned into. However, after having it in a zipped plastic bag too long, I decided to release it into my back yard. I did search the internet to see what they turn into, and they turn into a species of Tiger Moth.
From Wikipedia, they turn into the following moths: "Tiger moths (or tigers), which usually have bright colours, footmen, which are usually much drabber, lichen moths, and wasp moths."
