Wow...

For some reason, I find this fascinating. Must be the biologist in me. Of course, if it really happened in my own yard, I would be none too pleased.

However, you can't blame the caterpillars, they are only doing what nature intended them to do. It's just as natural to them as farting is to us.

(BTW if someone can identify the language, I'd appreciate it. I'm guessing Swedish?)

the link "Text" takes you to a page in English. The animal is a moth called Bird-cherry Ermine. Yes, it is Swedish.

Fascinating, somewhat remind me of those giant bug movies of 70s.

Ohhhh ick. I have the shivers now. I love butterflies and caterpillars, but only in small doses.

Couldn't! Look! Away!!!
