|A closer look at the head|
They are everywhere! It's caterpillar season!:) But rather than post every hairy scary one that I find, I decided one colourful one is enough for today's post! Aren't the patterns amazing? I found it on the leaf of the Rangoon Creeper/Quisqualis indica.

A short note about this plant...the unique thing about this plant also known as the Chinese Honeysuckle is that the blooms are white when they first appear. Then they turn to a light shade of pink. When this change takes place, dark pink stripes form at the back of the petals. Finally the whole flower turns to a dark shade of pink before withering away. So the vine has all the colours on display.

And the water hen, yes the white-breasted one, was kind enough to pose for me. If only the heat had that kind of effect on all the other birds too!!
There's so much happening all the time in the world of nature and I'm so glad to be able to share my observations on Nature Notes. For more posts that you'll surely love to read, visit Michelle at Rambling Woods, the home of Nature Notes.
