This is a Tent Caterpillar. These are the most destructive creatures in my area right now. These guys love to make huge nests in various fruit trees, but won’t stop there! When I see the little rosebud I can’t help but wonder how it will hold up against the beast! This shot was taken on April 20,010 with my Canon Rebel XSi

    Great capture Sue ! Do you have a rose garden ?

  • Hi Ralph! Thank you for the compliment. No, I don’t have a rose garden…these are some that are planted along the property line between mine and my neighbors house. I pass them as I walk into the forest beyond my yard. XXSUEXX
