I love how I stirred up a whole caterpillar’s nest with those calathea shots Grin

Now wouldn’t it be great to capture a REAL caterpillar looking like that?? That’d be awesome.

Annette, I know the toy you’re talking about! Yeah…so true Smile

By the way, big thanks to Carol (CarolG) and Carole (Rolepics) for identifying the wee flower two uploads ago (image V4) as a viola.

Now then…this upload…just some lusty clouds. That’s what I call ‘em when they’re…I dunno…all puffy and with lots of contrasts and edges and tones and whatnot. These I found quite interesting ‘cos of that straight line running beneath them.

Yep, you could just about draw a straight line with a ruler below those clouds! Rather lovely mono.

Superbly captured and they certainly look like they're floating, an interesting formation, Andrew.
