WordPress Photo Challenge: Focus on The Very Hungry Caterpillars
Last week I looked out my screen door only to discover an army of caterpillars dressed in green military fatigues chomping their way through my once thriving pot of parsley. I took several pictures to document the devastation, but my battery was low, and I could not get the focus right.
I charged the camera battery for about a half an hour, hoping the crawling critters would still be mowing the parsley so I could get a few focused pictures. Note that the focus improved once the battery had enough charge.
The caterpillars climb bare stalks looking for more of that good, leafy stuff.
Here the little herbivores go out on a limb to get the very last bites of leafy green. And look at that guard cat…asleep on the job…again. Fired!
The Last Meow
What? Me asleep on the job. No way. I know these green cuties will soon be sweet little flutterbys and will gather around all of your lovely butterfly bushes. See, I am always thinking about you. (That caterpillar on my ear did tickle a bit!)
Meow for now. =<^;^>=
PS. Do you remember reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle in Kindergarten? Kids love that book and ask to hear it read or read it themselves over and over again. Here Darren Robert McTurk reads this well-loved book for you.
