Caption

Brown tail moth larvae. Colony of the larvae (caterpillars) of the brown tail moth (Euproctis chrysorrhoea). This is a European night-flying moth. The larvae build this silk 'tent' for protection from predators. They are a potential hazard to humans due to their hairs that can produce severe rashes upon contact with the skin. Here, mature larvae have spun their tent on a blackthorn plant (Prunus spinosa) in a farm hedge. Photographed in May, in Norfolk, UK.
