Whilst in the meadow yesterday, I spotted this beautiful swallowtail caterpillar, chomping away on a wild fennel stem. On looking closer, I saw that he/she was being watched from above. I took some images as the shield bug went closer to investigate, he decided that it was nothing to worry about, so continued on his way down the stem.
