Interesting Insects


I discovered these beautiful pink, spikey buds and flowers growing near the woodline.  As I was browsing through the bush to get the best angles I came across these very interesting “S” black caterpillar type creatures.  A few times they struck their hind-end’s at the leaf, I think in an attempt to shoo me away.  I have never seen these guys before.  They were enjoying the leaves from this particular flower bush, though, and it seemed each one had their very own leaf all for himself!

I know we are also in for a treat with the locusts this year and took a few shots of the shells I found in and around one of our Dogwood trees.  It’s really quite amazing how they are able to shed that without causing more than the small split down the back!

Show some love!
