I was in Colorado Springs in mid-October when I noticed something floating in front of my face. I tried dodging it, but it landed on my sunglasses. When, I initially saw it, it was attached to a single ~1-foot long strand of (what I believe was) silk. Now, I BELIEVE it was using this silk to float on the wind (as I've seen some species do on nature documentaries), but it is possible it was dangling from something I walked under, and I just failed to notice. Considering where I was when I noticed it, I believe the former is more likely. The creature, I believe some kind of caterpillar, was a bright, almost translucent green. It is incredibly small, approximately 1/8 to 1/16 of an inch.
I tried to see if I could find the caterpillar online. Caterpillaridentification.org has a list of caterpillars found in Colorado that you can filter buy color. The one I believe it looks closest too is the "cabbage looper", but Google says those caterpillars are about an inch and a half long, considerably larger than what I saw. This makes me believe that I probably ran into a newly born caterpillar.
