I don't think so, I'm pretty sure it is the genus rusticus wirus :lol:

hmmm, I think you're right. I was thinking grapevinicus wrappedupicus but rusticus wirus seem more likely. Sure had me fooled from the highway at 6 am. Thanks for the ID.

It looks like it's half cat, weird loooking critter. Would love to see a close-up of one of those, never heard of them.

Nice capture,

I think Nova Scotia is a little out of it's range. This was in the Great Lakes area. They might reach there as global warming continues.

Thanks, I was amused by it when I finally got close enough to see what it really was.

It is amazing you captured him in this motionless state... I read that when they are "wired" they are impossible to photograph........... great work....

Yes, he didn't move for almost a quarter mile walk to the barn. Amazing poser!

I almost got one of those. I had to keep my friend from going up there and throwing it down.
