Found this little fella when I pulled up the dead rosemary plant in the new garden bed. If it's a good bug, I'll bury it again. If it's a bad bug, I'll leave it on the rock for the birds.

It's a caterpillar, likely a cutworm moth larva. If so, bad bug for plants.

I googled it, sure looks like one. I thought cutworms were much smaller and hard to see. I'll be out after dark with a flashlight more often now that I know what to look for.

I just checked, it was gone. I'm hoping a bird made a tasty meal of it.
