I like the way you've captured five whole caterpillars in the frame, Fred. It won't take them long to demolish that ragwort!

Such pretty caterpillars! Wonderful shot.
In my country they are considered pests because if they attack your veg or fruit crop they'll eat it in no time... But I think they are gorgeous!IB

A rather brilliant macro photograph depicting this rather handsome looking Catterpillars, "Of which seem to be in plenty this year?", stunning detail, and a host of beautiful natural colours.

A bit of an infestation but wonderfully colourful, and i don't suppose horse-owners will miss the ragwort!
