Caterpillars today! Being a fairly rustic location, there was a nettle patch just over the road, and I found a colony of these small tortoiseshell caterpillars, in the mid-stages of their development..

Up at Mappleton beach, this spiky fellow was crossing the road. It was actually blown over by the wind at one point! This is the caterpillar of the buff ermine moth Spilosoma luteum.
