EEEk! It's a Gypsy Moth Caterpillar Invasion!

I guess I must be a photographer at heart because I don't let the fact that caterpillars give me the creeps interfere with me taking a photo. :)

The Gypsy Moth Caterpillars have taken over Long Bridge Park. They can be seen EVERYWHERE. As we headed deep into the woods, the sound of munching leaves could be heard loud and clear. They were devouring leaves like there was no tomorrow. They could be found over the banisters, under the leaves and branches and all over the walkways. As evidenced in the below photo, Kaylie and Liam are trying to maneuver walking around them, to no avail. The kids, who usually fight and scream because they don’t want to depart the park, were begging to leave. June 1, 2007.
