Field Notes
We were outside sitting on our chairs and I saw this caterpillar that looked like Gypsy Moth we took pictures and I found out that it WAS Gypsy Moth by looking at a newspaper and by looking at the Vital Signs Gypsy Moth card. The Gypsy Moth larvae is bristly and it has two rows of colored bumps on its back.

Possibly a gypsy moth, time of year and location is right but photo is not clear enough for a positive ID. There other hairy caterpillars.

Glad you are being observant!

Okay, thanks! I didn't upload it for a long time because the photos weren't clear. This was from last year at the same time, so I gave it a shot.
