Processionary Caterpillar's 22nd & 23rd April 2012

On Saturday morning the 22nd of April, Master 9 came brought to my attention this large line of processionary caterpillars on the lawn.  When he first saw the line, he thought it was a snake, giving him a little fright!!  The caterpillars were a source of entertainment all day as we watched them move in a long line from the lawn onto the driveway, and eventually about 5 hours later, resting under a very small maleluca tree in the garden.  Master 9 counted the caterpillars and there were 129!!! 

The next morning we witnessed them coming out of their resting place on a new adventure!  We all wondered if they had a meeting and decided on a more competent leader who wouldn't have them wandering in circles all over the hot cement all day!!
