But now, through the eye of my lens, I am seeing the world of Ikland anew.
In this post I want to introduce you to a few of the specimens we have observed around our place:
First, this bright green slug with four horns and a sharp beak:
Second, this multi-colored worm with a little orange mark on its back:
Third, this furry guy with poisonous hairs it raised when I got close to it:
Fourth, this bizarre unicorn slug with a single blue antenna:
Fifth, this huge (4-5 in.) caterpillar with sharp spines and a voracious appetite:
Sixth, this fuzzy white fellow hanging off a blade of grass over the trail:
Seventh, this worm with a cool spiky hairdo:
Lastly, here we have some kind of stand-off between a beetle and a caterpillar:
Perhaps we should now be on the lookout for the beautiful butterflies and moths these caterpillars are soon to be become!
