Focal Length:80mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

Prior to our fab food at the Crab & Lobster in Sidlesham we had a walk at Pagham Harbour.

The stand out birds were the swifts racing around the sky, and a Reed Bunting singing away whilst perched on a small bush.

Our overgrown path was hardly befitting such a famous reserve, but in amongst the greenery I came across this remarkable caterpillar.

I took the photo on 30th June, at some stage this month it will stop munching, pupate, and if all goes well become a Lackey Moth.

Expect to see him flying some time this month!
