I just got back into town and decided to go for a jog, during which I noticed immense amounts of caterpillars covering the trees in my neighborhood. The first thing that popped into my head was the plagues of Egypt. I panicked, ran home, and hid in the corner. Then I googled “caterpillar colonies”. Turns out this phenomenon is not new or unusual, but for some reason I had never noticed it before. In conclusion, there are going to be a lot of moths flying around later this month.

Fascinating pics, especially the first one.
Does anyone know what kind of caterpillars these are and if they are harmful to plants or animals?
