Bagworm, Minomushi
While Typhoon No. 13 was playing havoc on Kyushu, it was just cloudy here ... but maybe it will disrupt my plans to go to Tokyo on Tuesday :-(

When we arrived home today, I saw this minomushi, or bagworm, on the wall. Good thing I had my camera handy. Anyway, I guess it's one of the bags that had been built on the nearby (to humans, at least) hedge. The worm used the bags as a shell, and went inside briefly when she became aware of me (as it is the female which stays in the larval form and remains in the bag).
