A lot of trees are infected by these caterpillars
around the entrance of the park Grace and I go walking in. it's a plague. no leaves left on the branches.
Oh, dear. They look similar to ones we have here, nasty things. They are also harmful to people -the spikes carry some kind of poison, not dangerous but very painful, and can be lethal for animals if they eat one.

Ooh no ! how horrible to have these caterpillars rendering trees and bushes to skeletons . Not a pretty sight !

Wow - this is a bit scary!!! They remind me of the potato/tobacco bugs that killed my tomato plant in one day last year.

Sounds like a gypsy moth.

Great shot. You need birds here .
(We had an infestation of the boxwood moth caterpillars. Where great tits were, they were eaten by them. They like hundreds of them a day for their little ones.)

Yuck! Sad to see the destruction caused by the caterpillars, but I guess it is all part of nature. We have stinging caterpillars here, which leave a nasty sting in you touch them.

What a great shot, pity about the destruction though.
