Version 1 is the caterpillar of the Malayan Egg Fly (butterfly) - it was busy munching away on a potted nettle they had in the undergrowth!

Version 2, I have no idea - can't find them anywhere. These were grouped at the end of a branch, quite high up. It looked like a flower from a distance!

Both taken at the Buckfastleigh Butterfly & Otter Centre.
(It's okay, I think I'm coming to the end of my visit now!) Smile

V2 looks like some sort of ice cream on a stick concoction gone horribly wrong!

Or a selection of licorice allsorts.

Nice work, Karyn.
V2 the best for me if I had to choose but I don't.
