Early new year visitors.
Some warner days have brought out many animals often not seen til later in the year. Yesterday I saw Lantern bugs, lunar moths and many vociferous frogs and these larvae/caterpillars.
Its a bit early, but you can now see the wonderful sight of these larvae/caterpillars that have began to form clumps of many individuals on tree trunks. They do this during the day to avoid predators, and then at night they go feed on vegetation nearby.
