There's a long story behind today's late post - suffice to say it starts with a very early morning plane trip. However, the 365 police might come down heavily on me if I fail to meet today's goal of making and posting (at least) one photo.
So the first goal of making photos today was easily passed. I met this little fellow on the screen of the pool enclosure. I'd never seen a caterpillar with such a unique hair-do - all I know is my mother would never have let me out of the house with hair like that ! And have you ever seen a caterpillar up on its hind legs ? Look at the second photo and you can clearly see that he's got his hind legs firmly planted as he's railing against whatever upsets caterpillars.
I think that the third photo perhaps explains why he was so upset that he had to raise several legs up in the air in exasperation - obviously all the static in the air was causing his bad hair day.
(By the way, that third photo is the first time I've caught a good lightning strike - something which I find easier here in Florida where they are in abundance).
Since I've only had a few catnaps over the past 36 hours, you'll excuse me if I come visit your blog over the next few days, after some shut-eye.
