Caption

Tent caterpillar (Yponomeuta abbreviana) suspended from a branch by a silk thread. This is the larval stage of a tent moth. The caterpillars spin tents of silk in the branches of trees. They shelter in the tents during hot or rainy weather, emerging during suitable weather to eat leaves. When caterpillar numbers are high, they can cause extensive defoliation of trees.
