Around five years ago, I traveled to the northwestern part of the lower peninsula of Michigan to visit my brother. Of course, I took my camera and throughout the four days I was there, spent a lot of time photographing the local fauna of all sizes.
The evening before I left, I was checking out his garden when I noticed a moving branch. Curiosity got the best of me and I took a closer look. To my surprise, that branch turned into a caterpillar. As I looked around, there were more and more. As I began pointing them out, he began removing them.
However, before he could eliminate all of them from the garden, I was able to get portraits of a couple of the invaders.
