…thanks to Becky B for hosting Tree Squares for the month of July, https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/07/09/tree-square-9/
Many parts of Ontario are infested with Gypsy Moth caterpillars this year. High Park was over-run with them two weeks ago and last week the trees around our cottage were covered with them. Unfortunately they chew through the leaves and can completely defoliate a tree.
The photo on the bottom was taken at High Park earlier this week. Normally this time of year the canopy is so dense that you wouldn’t be able to see the pond from that vantage point.
