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.

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 ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)

I’m a successful failure:
Failed domestic goddess;
Photography flop

BRILLIANT doggie mummy!
Dos this mean I’m a FAILED failure???

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
