Small Wonders

A closer look inside Walter Briggs' Forest

December 2, 2012
Looking like a creature from Men in Black, a tiny inchworm drops onto a huckleberry leaf from another leaf just overhead. Adult inchworms are only a half-inch to 1 inch in length. When first observed, the inchworm appeared to be a thin string or thread stuck to the edge of a leaf at one end. But then it moved oddly, as only a creature would. (Dan Bates / The Herald)
