It looks incredibly beautiful - but I'm not a great lover of caterpillars! Close up is better - I can see where they're coming from!!! Beautifully done, as usual, Brian!

Have never seen this particular caterpillar before, Brian: Quite an interesting structure and very prettily coloured. And you have captured it in such marvellous detail.
