Another wonderful day for a bike ride. I always take the camera along – just in case! Well you never know what you might spy. In the hedgerow, spreading across several branches, was an abundance of silk threads. Within the threads where hundreds of caterpillars , all about 1cm long, and all pulsating in time with each other. I have no idea what insect created this nursery but it was an incredible sight.
