Good to see that you are still finding things to shoot in your garden.
Ray: It has been a bit hard to find new things there lately, Martin, but occasionally I get lucky. Nice to hear from you again.

Jolies couleurs sur cette image. J'espère que tu as fait de gros plan sur cette chenille. Les détails doivent être extraordinaire à observer.

Looks like a burner, with those sea anemones growing on its back.
Ray: Caterpillars come in all kinds of fancy and bizarre costumes, don't they, Louis.

Gravity just doesn't seem to apply
Ray: They are well equipped to perform, Zed...unlike our feeble efforts.
No one has joined him as he has his stop lights on.
Ray: Yes.

Good one Ray
Ray: Thank you, Vintage. I like caterpillars, and am delighted when I am fortunate enough to come upon one.
NO need to share his meal there for sure Ray.
Ray: This one seems quite content to dine alone, Brian.
Obviously having a feast! Nice shot, Ray.
Ray: Chomping is its favourite behaviour at this stage in the lifecycle, Tom.

Fantastic colors Ray
Ray: Thank you, Scarlet. They are handsome things.
yum yum none of my buddies are around ... all the more for me.
Ray: With that attitude I expect he does not have buddies...

almost done with this half of the leaf. what a funky creature.
Ray: Seems like an extrovert, doesn't it, Mroy.
Hairy indeed. Lovely colours. The two red markings must be an extra detergent for predators. Do you know the name of the caterpillar? Does it turn into a moth or butterfly?
Ray: Thank you for your comment, Elsabe. I do not know the name of this fellow,or what it becomes when it grows up.
Quite hairy indeed with lovely colours!
Ray: It is a handsome beast, Richard.
