Tent Caterpillars? - Malacosoma californicum

Tent Caterpillars? - Malacosoma californicum
Powder Mountain Ski Resort, Morgan County, Utah, USA
June 17, 2007
There were quite a few of these tent caterpillars with white eyes. This was the only good shot I could get as they were really hauling and there were so many it was hard not to step on them (I hate caterpillar residue on the bottom of my shoes).
