Aspen Caterpillars?

Last spring when I first noticed these fuzzy oblong shapes in the grass along the path, at first I mistook them for caterpillars.

001Upon closer inspection, definitely not caterpillars. These are the catkins (male flowers) of aspen trees, and they are all over the place right now. Another sign of spring.
