Therisa found this amazing creature in our yard the other day!
After doing a little research with the help of knowledgeable friends,
she was determined to be a female Florida Bagworm (moth),
Oiketicus abbotii, female in sack.
This is the only bagworm species in the U.S. that arranges twig pieces transversely.
