More life with the browns

The Travel Words Photo Challenge – Life in Colour: Brown

A bit of a looking song if you want. One of my favourites

Here are a few browns forgotten last post – the butterflies

and a random mix

The Caterpillar Train

I thought I would do a reblog of an old post for the Ragtag Daily Prompt: Trail

I will do a bit of an edit as there was a mistake in the original

A while ago I commented how my girls liked to make the caterpillar train go into a circle. Well, yesterday, driving home, on the road outside of my place, a caterpillar train was crossing the road. I had to stop to make sure they got across the road safely, albeit with a slight detour. They are Ochrogaster lunifer or Processional Caterpillar

The caterpillar train stretched around three meters across the road

The leader seemed to know where to go.

They march nose to tail. Wouldn’t the one in front tickle your nose?

“Somehow” the leader “wanted” to join in the train somewhere

You aren’t allowed to push in the train.

Once you are out, it is hard to get back in.

Soon the train was in a bit of a circle with knots of caterpillars forming

They do try to find some semblance of order

Soon the circle became broken with a knot of caterpillars at the front

I am sure they were trying to elect a new leader

They are really hairy aren’t they?

Election over, the leader decided to get the caterpillar train back on track to find a Fringe Wattle, their favourite food on my place.

NOTE: Do not touch these caterpillars as they can cause a skin rash that can last a while.

NOTE: No caterpillars were harmed in this photo shoot

I joined those who went up to Barcelona

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: #SquareUp

So many people have looked up to Antoni Gaudi posting images of the wonderful Segrada Familia that I couldn’t not join in. I have been there twice and from the first time, a dusty plastic covered workplace to am amazing inside space with so much going on it’s hard to stop taking photos.

Enjoy a bit of a song as you have a look around


Let’s go up Barcelona to the Sagrada. First stop is looking up to the stained glass window of a huge variety of colours and hues

The stained glass windows reflect colour all throughout the building – on the columns, walls and floor.

Looking up to the ceiling is a treat for the eyes. The organic feel of the Sagrada is never more evident than in those tree like columns reaching up to the stars
