Straight Out of the Camera Sunday


Murrieta's 365 has a meme every Sunday for those photos that require no tweaking. Cropping is allowed and you must have taken the photo yourself. Check out what others have posted here.

Yum. Dinner.

I had quite a few photos to choose from but decided to use this one. For the record, I left the little creatures on the parsley until yesterday, Friday. They were about three times their size as that in this photo, and it is no wonder since quite a few leaves were gone. lol I took the photos on October 11, 2009. I had no idea caterpillars grew so fast (I'm a first year gardener). I cut the stems where it was and tossed over the fence. Perhaps they will like the grass better than the parsley. :D

Until next time, God bless.

We have a tree outside that looked like it had turned into lace... the caterpillars ate every leaf. That was in the springtime, not the fall. I think they will be back...

Great capture. You're a patient gardener, indeed.

Between the caterpillars and the grasshoppers, it's a wonder I have a garden! I remember many of those lacy plants DJan mentioned!

Ooohh cool! What a great capture and steady hand to get it so sharp. Don't these memes keep us busy Lynn? hehe

Oh I'm sure he will find something he likes...the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence you know.

When I was very young, I'm always out in search for caterpillars. I would then keep one or two inside a plastic containers together with some leaves for them to eat.

Caterpillars DO grow fast and NOW you know. ;-) Great photo!

Very fun! I didn't know they grew that fast either! They left little parsley for you? ;(

They must have thought the parsley was yummy if they grew that big. Great macro shots, and I would have done the same thing. Photos and then move them somewhere else.

Great Picture! I had catepillars eat my parsley last year and panicked thinking it was bad. Later on I realized they were Monarch Butterfly Caterpillars. Parsley is a host plant for them and this year I let the caterpillers eat the parsley hoping for more butterflies and then the parlsey shot back up in less than a week. Happy Gardening!
