Caption: Gypsy moth caterpillar (Lymantria dispar) spinning a cocoon. Its long hairs deter predators. The caterpillar pupates in cracks or crevices, spinning a very small amount of silk. The pupal stage lasts about 10 days and the adult moth then emerges. The gypsy moth inhabits woodlands and forests in temperate regions of the world. Photographed in the New Jersey Pinelands, USA.
