A rather cracking close up photograph, full of beautiful colour, detail, and warming light, which really emphasises this gorgeous pair of 'Cinnabar Moth Larvae' so very well.

Probably would have worked better with just one caterpillar but nevertheless a very fine and detailed close-up.

They can demolish ragwort at an amazing rateTongue! Perfect format for these two little stripey munchers.
