Yet Another Reason Why Photography Is Wonderful

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.

Photographed with a Canon 100mm Macro lens and Canon MT-24EX Twin Flash, 1/250 f14
