Just two pictures today which were taken in our garden. It's always amazing to find out what is living in our own back gardens without our knowledge. This little creepy-crawly for instance is the larva of a fairly common insect called a Dot Moth (Melanchra persicariae). A new species for me this and another 'tick' on the life list. The caterpillar was feeding on our Poppy plant so may have a taste for the opiates found in the poppy's sap!
