I am pretty sure that we willed this beast into existance this morning. Only last week did we miss out on the chance of getting to see a Puss Moth Caterpillar in Kent so we were delighted this morning when a radio message came through about a large green caterpiller with two tails, a dark saddle and a red face.
It was indeed the hoped for cat and everyone was well chuffed to see one of these fabulous creatures (especially Annie!).
So many thanks to Colin the Caterpillar Finder and to Chris Lowe for not just taking some snaps and walking on!
The smiley fake face in full threat mode......astonishing natural adaptation.
These ones by me!
Look at that those amazing sucky feet! (Brenda Clayton)
