Some extremely green neighbours looking for a port in a storm.......






























































We are experiencing the tail end of three Atlantic storms at the moment with a lot of high winds and rain. This is always a good time to come across the smaller green neighbours in the undergrowth. Some are greener than others and are hard to miss, like this caterpillar screaming out it's edible juiciness to passing blackbirds and thrushes!

This frog which I assume to be female, is having a good look in at the cabbage plants safely caged off from the rabbits. Spooky little hands.......

  3. Lol that frog looks like she'd really like to get into your cabbages! Also I love those little caterpillars, we used to find them nestled in the pebbledash of my granmothers house when we were little :) I hope your garden is doing OK in the middle of this storm, fingers crossed it will pass on soon.

  5. Esther that is a little succulent plant that grows in the gravel outside my kitchen door, it has those sweet yellow flowers too. Of course it looks a bit gloopy because it is larger in the photo.

  8. I've been shooting 2 kinds of larvae also last weekend, one green and another brownish red. I got them first from their habitat to take the photos and then returned them to the same plant which they eat, devouring all the caladium leaves. Your larva is so thin and long, mine was short but fatter, haha! But that from is nicely colored, we dont have that color here! Thanks for visiting our country through my blog!

  10. The wind appears to be calming down now here, my little one is bored as I won't let him play out for fear of falling roof tiles. That caterpillar would have me running, I'm a bit freaked out by them!

  11. O Sam am sorry about that...I actually picked one up for the first time, warm and jelly like....my problem would be more in the rodent department! It's lovely to hear that some of you are enjoying the photos so much, I certainly am anyway, it's an absorbing activity:~)
