Onslaught by the Yellow Troops

I, a grown woman, who, at times, takes herself rather seriously (operative words: "at times") continue acting like a curious little boy thanks to my macro lens.

I've walked past this tree a number of times, thinking that what I saw from a distance was a large spider web. Upon closer inspection, however, I found this swarming, swirling, hairy caterpillar mass, some of whose members were already happily munching on the nearby leaves. 

Poor tree.

Happy photographer!
