Stranger than Fiction

I was out for a walk in the graveyard the other day and I spotted this:

Is this a real creature?! 

I had no idea it was alive until it moved. I'm delighted that this creature exists in real life! I described this little chap to a wildlifey friend and she assures me that this is a Sycamore Caterpillar.

  1. I can't decide what I like better about this post; that you were so delighted by this adorable caterpillar? or that you were out walking in a graveyard! I have been reading Neil Gaiman books all month and I have been itching to go walking in a graveyard!

    1. It helps that I am very easily delighted by things. I'm also very delighted by your blog, just so you know :D
      We have a graveyard really close to my house, and it is quite lovely to have a stroll in. The Graveyard Book is one of my favourites and now every time I visit a graveyard I find myself looking for ghoul-gates!
