Whilst on holiday in Turkey, we went to Cappadocia where there are the most amazing rock formations that people have adapted in the past for homes and other purposes. It would seem that monks particularly liked carving monasteries into the rock. But we went to a place called Selime where there was a Cathedral that had been carved into the rock….well a long time ago!
I’d have to tell you that I visited a lot of these ‘carved into the rock’ type places which were interesting….but Selime Cathedral was AMAZING and I don’t think my photos do justice to how incredible it was!
This last photo is not brilliant but it does show the size of the rooms that the monks carved. The roof was about 30 feet high and the first room led into another that was just as big!
Whilst out walking today I saw what i presumed was something that had come out of a bird and onto a little hawthorn trying to make it’s way in life! Something, however, prompted me to look closer……at which point I thought….”Damn it all, it’s alive!”
You see at first it was lying flat but then it seemed to rear up!
This is a second ‘thing’ that also reared up as I came in close with my camera!
It was about half a centimetre long.
Now the next photo ain’t great but I wanted to show you the ‘thing’ in its flat version before I disturbed it with my camera!
Odd or what?
So if anyone knows….please let me know!
See Ya xx
A while later and some research completed……I can reveal it’s a fruit slugworm!
