    1. Yes, it's pretty far out there Robin. I don't think I'll be having them in for dinner any time soon lol.

  4. Wow, awesome photo!! I'd be way to creeped out to get close enough for a photo, but I really do think it's very cool when it's on my computer screen. ;)

  6. Beware of these caterpillars, processionary seem, are very dangerous especially to the eyes, do not touch!

    1. Thanks for the warning Leovi. They are pretty high up and far away from our house, so we definitely won't be touching!

  9. Yuck!! I remember one summer when I was a child, we had an invasion of these things. They were everywhere! You couldn't even go outside because you'd step on them. At night when it was really quiet, you could hear them chomping on leaves ~ crunch, crunch, crunch. Thank goodness that hasn't happened ever again.

  10. I have never seen anything like this before. What is with all the negatives about these guys. Are these caterpillars poisonous??

    1. I think they are kind of neat to watch. I don't know if they are poisonous or not. They stay pretty high up in the tree. If they come down though, we don't touch because I know some caterpillars do bite. I just don't know which ones.

  12. We have tons of these little buggers this year! I don't know why so many more than usual, but they're everywhere!

    Happy WW and I hope you have a great week!

  15. Here we go on week 2 for me and my little blog. But I am loving this. Those calipettars are so cool. That is how my Z-bug first pronounced them. I still have to say it like that every so often. I am glad you loved Duchess in my post. hahahhaha.

  16. Very interesting Theresa! It is amazing to know that they will eventually be butterflies flying around. Thanks for hosting.

  17. hi Theresa! Have you been to my site to see two painted samplers sign in a photo as my WW pic? I have had two people say they don't see anything there. I see it on my view and on my dashboard. Just wondering if you could see it?

  18. I have never ever seen anything like this before. What's inside all of that webbing? Or do I even want to know...

    1. It looked like a bunch of dirt and leaves with a few more caterpillars inside.

  21. I have never seen anything quite like this. Very fascinating, thanks for sharing. I am always intrigued by insects, even did insect units every summer when I worked at the Montessori, but I can't stand bugs. Ironic, isn't it.

  22. Eww...caterpillars really gross me out..don't really like them but they really grow up to become beautiful butterflies.

  26. Neat! We have one we're keeping as a pet. Hopefully it'll turn into a moth, not die. Lol.

  32. oh wow...awesome capture, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that tree when they start coming out of their cocoon. That is a lot of caterpillars!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate those things. They bite when they accidentally land on you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok kinda creepy but super awesome at the same time!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never seen anything like that in my yard and I think I'd probably freak out a little bit if I did lol.
