Tu l'as surpris en plein repas.
Ray: Ils sont toujours au milieu d'un repas, Martine ... manger est tout ce qu'ils font! Pauvre désert Rose! sad

Oh, the eating machine looks aggressive. Good that we are human beans.
Ray: Ha ha

I would not like to be a leaf in the presence of this critter, Philine.

It is amazing how this green eating machine turns eventually into what it eventually does
Ray: For me, Chris, this is one of Nature's big Wows!
The very hungry caterpillar
Ray: You certainly know your kids' books, Gramps!

I bet that thee will be little left of that leaf in a few hours' time.
Ray: In fact, Alan, in an hour it will have consumed several leaves!
What is the black bit Ray?
Ray: Oh...poppy seeds, Chad...we roll 'em in poppy seeds before popping 'em in the oven.

Oooops...my bad...that is bread rolls....not caterpillars!
Munch, munch, munch. I have the ultimate photographer for you to explore, Ray. Just discovered him yesterday.

As it says at first, watch the film.
Ray: Interesting stuff, Mary...nothing there for me, though as I like my subjects to be alive and active.
i like the greens in this image, Ray. great shot, as usual.
Ray: You are very kind, Ayush.
Voracious little beastie!
Ray: This one's appetite is astonishing, Tom...one caterpillar can strip the entire shrub.
I like these big caterpillars, we have some similar to this over here.
Ray: Attractive critters, Brian, and I love the moth. Devastating for my Desert Roses, though.
yuck!!... don't much like this one Ray....petersmile
Ray: Na dislikes these critters intensely, Peter.
