Little things

Wondered what the black thing on my phone charging cable was. Then it moved…. inch wise. Getting in really close I could see it was a really tiny looper caterpillar, about 5mm long. It must have dropped off my clothing as I had just come in from the garden.

It may be Ectropis excursari – the twig looper – as it was trying really hard to look like a twig. This was never going to work as the stem it was on was pure apple white.

No idea which plant it likes, so I hope it survives back out there.

These happy friends are for my happy friends. No portraits here in case you were wondering.img_4280
