Attack of the Caterpillars

We went up north for a couple of days to our property in northern Michigan. Unfortunately, there was a huge outbreak of tent caterpillars and it got to our property as well. Friends of ours had been up a couple weeks ago while the caterpillars were still there so we knew it was a possibility (their property is about 5 miles away). But, it was a little more than I expected - it looks like early spring before the leaves bud. At this time of year, you shouldn't even be able to see through any of the woods.

Reading about them though, it sounds like in the next couple weeks, new leaves should grow, so that will be good. It might make for a not as pretty fall though. :(
