Munch,munch ..lunch

Magpie Moth caterpillar .... munching its way around a Laurel leaf.

Got so many of these - thought I would go with one more.

Computer is throwing wobblies !!!!- catch you when I can.

Apologies to those who had voted - thanks to Tony_M for his comment on deleted image - but I uploaded the wrong version.

I went to vote and there it was gone but pleased to get the opportunity to view now Brian as when I saw it coming up I thought just from the thumb, by golly I like that Brian's picture today and you had to wait your turn heheh! in fact it did me a favour as now hopefully its here to stay, having waffled on for far too long will now add what a gorgeous shot I love it and the nice curve you have caught of this caterpillar munching away.

Hi Brian,

He does look intriguing but I imagine can devour a leaf in short order. Clarity, detail and pleasing composition up to your high standards.
