The larva of the gorgeous Cinnabar moth. The only one I saw at Barmston on the Yorkshire coast, but I found hundreds at Askham, York recently, a delightful sight. They feed on Ragwort and eventually become a beautiful red moth which happily flies by day.

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”
John Ray (17th century naturalist)
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
