photographing and learning about wildlife
While taking a walk I noticed an entire hoard of fall webworms. It is not believed to harm any trees with the web making it does and I was quite fascinated with such a large clutch of the caterpillars being so low to the ground. I've seen their moths around my house too but have never made the connection.
The moth is native to North America, ranging from Canada to Mexico, and is one of the few insect pests introduced from North America into other continents.
