Caterpillers Everywhere!

    It was a bad year for caterpillars here, too- tent caterpillars- hundreds of them during the hot part of summer.

    I’ve never seen any like that around here. We are seeing a lot of caterpillars and butterflies and moths lately… and yes, those awful grasshoppers too!
