Photographer's Note

This morning, as we were walking in nature, we could see closely these strange nests or cocoons that you more and more frequently meet on the pines since the beginning of spring. Curious, i just wanted to learn more on these funny tricks and then, surprised more! these cocoons are nests of processionary caterpillars. These caterpillars there, in spite of their nice hairy air and their funny mooving way, are far from the nice Disney caterpillar eating apples. Their hair contains a substance irritant and necrosing. They thus should not be touched very and especially, if you take along your dog in ballade and that you see these nests, made attention.
