I was walking in Burnham Woods on the evening of September 1 and came across these strange creatures all over a young beech sapling.  I could see them all rocking back and forth. Strangest sight. Sue Paradisis

Note: After a bit of research, I discovered they are a kind of woolly aphid called Beech Blight Aphids. Click here for more information. D.M.
