The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This spiky little chap was busy munching his way through a sunflower leaf. The plant was about seven feet tall so he had plenty to go at!

I hope you know the book by Eric Carle of the same name...actually, I think it's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar.' In any case, if you don't know it, read it, and you'll see a lot of similarities!

Excellent shot!

Fantastic shot! Bravo, bravo!

That is an absolutely fantastic photo Marley - just brilliant.

I hope he left you some of the sunflower and didn't munch it all into oblivion!
