I enjoy seeing what the participants are looking up and down at, in their part of the world.
This week, in my little part of the world, on looking up at one particular species of Pine tree we see this
See that fuzzy looking thing just off-centre?....that is actually a cocoon, full of PROCESSIONARY CATERPILLARS... a species of caterpillar that is especially poisonous to dogs and cats and is highly prevalent at this time of year,..hence the reason my 'DOWN' picture is this....
....Boo on an incredibly short leash!
I had the zoom lens on the camera on at full strength, taking the tree shots! I actually spent more time looking at the ground than I did at the tree..it was literally 'point and shoot'. In saying that, you see most dog-owners walking with their heads down at the moment, as the caterpillars can actually be found anywhere, and the countryside around us has hundreds of these pine trees.
Before Boo came to live with me, I had a line of them crawling through the garden... I can see how they get everywhere- the little blighters move at a fair speed! Fortunately I had been warned about them and gave them a wide berth (but had I been blogging at the time, I would have taken a photograph!)
Hope life is looking good where you are!
Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you
