Several thousand beetle larvae all sharing the same tree. There were colonies in pretty much every crevice, hanging from the twigs, on the grass nearby...

Thanks Jack & Mary! By the time we were ready to leave we also had a few on the windshield & I even found one on my arm! I'm guessing they must have just dropped from the trees!
wow, now that is a lot of larvae! wonderful spot and photo series.
Wow, cool spotting!
Thanks Cindy! I think it will be a bumper year for leaf beetles in Tennessee!
