Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

This caterpillar he climbed so high

Half way up my back wall

And then he stopped and looked about

I hoped he wouldn’t fall

For even though the likes of him

Eat up my nasturtiums

I always love the look of them

After their conversions!

(Into butterflies….keep up!)

He started swaying from side to side

It was a curious thing

It was then I saw he was securing himself

With what looked like fine silk string!

‘Aha,’ I thought as I watched him,

 ‘He’s preparing to be a cocoon!’

Then just then right at that moment

He performed a dead faint swoon.

I poked him gently-he didn’t move

Perhaps he’d run out of thread

Or maybe he’d just had enough

How sad if he was now dead!

I checked the following morning

He hadn’t changed at all

He was still a caterpillar

Hanging upon my wall 😦

The next day to my great surprise

My eyes near popped out of my head

For look what had happened at dead of night

No more caterpillar but a chrysalis instead!

I feel this qualifies for the theme of ‘Change!’

That’s All!

An unlikely pairing?……

"Whoa, slow down big boy!" said Carl Caterpillar, "You'll have me on the floor at that speed!"

“Whoa, slow down big boy!” said Carl Caterpillar, “You’ll have me on the ground if you carry on at that speed!”

 

"That's better, nearly my stop and I'll be off! Thanks Selina Snail!" shouted Carl Caterpillar!

A Word A Week Challenge: Pose

Here’s a little chap I met this summer who was certainly up for a pose!

It didn't take much encouragement to get Gordon Grey Dagger to get on the table once he realised there was a camera and possible fame on a blog!!

It didn’t take much encouragement to get Gordon Grey Dagger to get on the table once he realised there was a camera and possible fame on a blog in it!

 

With a little encouragement……

"Hold it a bit lower!" ordered Gordon Grey Dagger in a slightly irritated way!

“Hold it a bit lower!” ordered Gordon Grey Dagger in a slightly irritated way!

So I held the leaf a bit lower!

Ah Gordon, the perfect pose, showing you on your best side and with ample light to show your true beauty!

In case you hadn’t realised, this rather lovely caterpillar will grow into a Grey Dagger moth!!
