    I have seen these around before, they kind of jump. Had always thought they were some sort of spider until I seen one up close. Almost looks like a shell that something hatched from. Wasn't sure which end was up LOL

    I think your right about the cacoon.Here is a picture I took. If you look closely at your first shot almost looks like fury feet. Maybe I'm wrong, they might match.

    I saw some of them last year but none this year yet. They seem to be a cacoon of some sort. I really do not know. It might be something different

    It does look the same Gail. Wonder what kind of bug it turns into.
