I think that the spider web looking things in our trees are the nests of a type of moth. The contractor working on our house, Matt Despres (http://www.despresrealestate.com/index.html), told me that those were gypsy moths. I still don’t know much about them, but it is comforting to know that there isn’t a bug big enough to wrap a raccoon or squirrel up in a web in a tree. J (I knew that.) We have had moths flock to our windows and screen doors all summer. Some of them are quite large, and pretty. Most of them are dull. They make a great plaything for our cat when they get in the house. Other than that, I know nothing about them. And, unlike dragonflies, they don’t really interest me much. However, if you want to know more about gypsy moths, they actually have their own website: http://www.gypsy-moth.com/.
