Tent Caterpillars Revisited
Remember the tent caterpillars I talked about a couple of weeks ago? Kind of eww, kind of cool.
We've got rather a lot of them this year. They've emerged from their tents and are eating everything in their path. These guys are on a chokecherry tree.
All that was left were a few blooms on the tips of the branches. The caterpillars had eaten every leaf. Look at the pic above again. See what I mean?
You can hear the munching and crunching. [shudder] At which point the eww factor far exceeds the cool factor.
