The rain held off long enough to let us go for a walk in the morning at Coney Island, 9 Jan 2021. Among the things spotted as this wonderful architecture that looks like a miniature pile of logs created by the caterpillar of a Bagworm Moth (Family Psychidae).

A nice start to observations in 2021. ๐Ÿ™‚
