Found this on my commute, what the heck is it?
 
I had to duck to avoid this one. Yes there is an insect emerging from some type of cocoon. What is it???

Some kind of bagworm.

Yep, that's a bagworm. They are rife down here in Maryland and further south, though evidently they've been migrating further north each year for about a decade or so.

Wow, Interesting. Never heard of them.

We'll they have made up to 42 degrees northern latitude apparently.

I've seen things like that in swamps, but not hanging from trees.
