The Hungry Little Caterpillar by 

Today I was tidying up the creeper that is growing over my garden arch when I found this little fella. Looks like he is a bit hungry!

    I had to replace all my lettuce plants today. Bought a mini green house for them so hopefully no more worms eating my salad !!

  • Sounds like a good plan :) How did the photo shoot go the other day ? :)

    Caught in action, lol! Nicely done, Missy. I understand what you mean about shots once you get the macro lens….I was walking around trying to find the tiniest thing so shoot, lol! :)Karen

  • Thanks Karen! I only found this one by accident. I was at the top of the ladder doing the top of the creeper when I found him. Went and got the camera and lucky for me he was still there. Although he didnt look like he was going anywhere in a hurry :) One hand on the camera and one hand hanging from the arch so as not to come off the ladder :) lol
