Artist's Description

Recently I met up with two of my good friends George and
Ted and we spent a Saturday afternoon at Sherwood Pines which is part of the Sherwood National Forest in Nottinghamshire. It was a fantastic day out photographing the beautiful park there. We did spend a lot of time shooting macros of the bracken fern covered forest floor, and the little creatures that live on them. I managed to find this lovely fellow on one of the fern “fiddleheads” probably getting ready to munch away. He was so tiny I was afraid i couldn’t get a decent picture of him. I believe I have found the beginning of my answer. I have narrowed down the field and have determined that it is a type of Skipper caterpillar, but I am still unsure of the variety as there are so many close to it, like the European, the Dreamy Duskwing, or the Silver Spotted which are similar but not exactly, and they don’t live on Bracken Ferns. If any of you have the answer, please share. Otherwise, I will continue in my quest later.
