3. Inch worm. Up the silk. Wuling Mts., Hunan, China.

3. Inch worm. Up the silk. Wuling Mts., Hunan, China.

While photographing this animal it put out a silk thread and dropped down from where it had been. After traveling 15 cm it started back up the silk. What was interesting was that it did not make a smooth accent but flipped its body back and forth as it gathered the silk.
