Fascinating image of this caterpillar and it's 'mobile home'. The diversity, adaption & tricks of the trade in the insect world always amazes me and this an execptional example.
An exceptional example that you've captured and illustrated in a very professional and compelling manner - especially with this moth palace dangling by a thread and in stark, ominous contrast to the darkened forest beyond.
Well timed, very well captured and thanks so much for this interesting lesson of nature.

Well what a fascinating and wonderful image you show us here. This is what TrekNature is supposed to be about people with a love of nature, showing natures beauty and action to others so they can learn. I appreciate very much the lesson you have taught me today Ron, thank you.
I actually open this pic because I was courious about how this thing was hanging... I can barely see the silk thread! amazing shot!!
