This is the catipillar of a Gypsy Moth, i think...

This year it is the year of the Gypsy Moth... they are very destructive, shredding the leaves of the native and domestic trees alike to the point that it is almost like fall again. Their fecal matter and shed skins cover anything left outside in a matter of minutes and you can stand still and listen to it fall like... it sounds like rain... i don't know much else about hem only that they began their destruction in may and as of now are big and fat and moving on to their next life stage, which apparently will attract a number more birds to my area...

PP is a crop and slight unsharp mask...

Great shot! Nice close up and detail. This year in the north east they have been noticable but not that bad due to the amount of rain we've had. Good luck trying to contain them!

Hi Laurita

Excellent colours and detail. Beautiful composition.I like the way the light is diffusing through the leaves , like a spotlight on the caterpillar. Nice rich tones too.TFS
