A prickly situation.

By bricurtis
A prickly situation.

Caterpillar of a Scarlet Tiger moth on a clump of Pulmonaria.

Spotted this while trying to get shots of Bee-flies that love this plant.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm sure you weren't too disappointed to get this as an alternative to bee-flies, Brian.
There are prickles and hairs in abundance here, it's only the flower that has bothered to shaveSmile.

I've only got one question: How is it possible that there is no velcro effect beween the two types of prickles Smile

Incredibly prickly sharp shot!

So funny if the caterpillar went "Ouch!" while crawling over the plant's hairs Grin
