I looked down at the edge of the driveway and noticed an inch worm making its’ way into the dirt. When I examined it I wondered, is an inchworm really an inch long? When I placed it on a ruler I saw it was three-quarters of an inch, at least this one was. As I photographed the inchworm it lay still and looked more like a twig, a rather effective camouflage. Enjoy the up close and personal look at this intriguing tiny creature.
Inchworms are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Lepidoptera, family Geometridae.
This inchworm proved to be three-quarters of an inch. It was very effective at looking like a twig.
Seems animals and insects, like humans, cannot resist getting into each other’s business.
