About This Image

One of my coworkers commented on this image today. I took it while my computer was out of commission - almost a month ago. Today the same tree is bare - an infestation of Gypsy Moths stripped the leaves from many of our trees - now the moths are hatching and the small creatures are everywhere!

Nice shot of the Robin - that is awful about all the caterpillars.

Ho Andy and lorraine! We've had so many guests complaining here at the resort, Andy. They could hardly get into their rental units and the outdoor pools were filled with caterpillars. Even now we have to check our lawn furniture closely before we sit down or grill outside. It's pretty grim. The Stste said that the spray they used last year wasn't effective enough so they didn't repeat it this year. Good luck in New Zealand in the Spring, lorraine. Vicki

Nice capture, we had something like this in Auckland, the sprayed by plane, I'm sure they got them all, well I hope so. I'm sure it was the same name.

I know just what you mean about the Gyp Moth. Your Robin is a great capture, but unfortunately the devastation caused by the Gyp moth are starting to show on the leafs, and it looks like the 4 egg masses on the bottom of the limb, beneath the Robin, means we will get more of the same damage next year. 8^ (
