Nature Study: Gypsy Moth Caterpillar

While we were out carschooling one day this past summer, we saw a gypsy moth caterpillar climbing a tree.  We tried to take pictures of it, but they came out blurry because the caterpillar kept moving around too quickly for our camera to properly focus (sometimes these digital cameras make me wish for an old film-using point-and-shoot camera!).  These are some pictures from Wikimedia so you can see what we saw, which was kind of creepy:
