Meet Spike :D

By Quoise
Just had to take some shots of this caterpillar, it was tiny, munching its way through leaves fattening itself up. No idea which butterfly it will become.

Very good shot. Not 100% sure but the nearest I can find in my ID books is the Silver Washed fritillary,
Try Googling it and you may have some success.

First class macro work,, Quoise - I just love the way it's wrapping its little legs round the stem of the leaf!
It's as if its life depends on it which, it most probably does!!

I used to like find hairy caterpillars in the garden when I were a lad, pick them up and play with them. Don't think I'd want to try to pick up this one though! Grin A great find, Quoise, and a super close-up capture Wink
