Macro photography at the park

 I am not particularly a caterpillar hunter, though I love to photograph butterflies.  While doing some bush clearing work this afternoon I was attracted to a strong red and white colour on a long tiny branch.  On closer examination I found it to be a bundle of caterpillars.  Very interesting indeed to see so many of them cuddling each other.  Their black hairs look like menacing thorns. A  white band makes striking contrast to the red body.
