Weird and wonderful garden finds

Luckily we spotted this weird creature outside the back door before it was stepped on!

Do you know what it is? It is a case moth caterpillar - carrying its case around! It wandered across the yard - quite slowly, and fascinating to watch, looked like hard work really, dragging its "case" of sticks around. Makes a snail carrying its shell look rather light weight and speedy in fact! It ended up crawling up the front of the cubby house and spent the night there, but in the morning was nowhere to be found. We have to watch our step now, in case it turns up, heading off on another walk again!
