Ugly Duckling
9

I didn’t know what to make of it at first, is this the front or rear … or deceptive in survival, eat the tail before the head?

It becomes apparent … it’s the rear all right, of a not very attractive caterpillar resting out of the sun and wind.

At least, by the look of it, I wouldn’t eat it. Not without someone else testing it first. An unusual creature for sure.

Actually, it does grow on me. It is pretty in a way, an alien life-form sort of way. I wasn’t game to taste it though.

And here is its face coming into view, tucked into its middle. Mother probably loves her, mother Earth for sure.

Nice details and colors.  I like the 3rd one the best.

Thanks D... Everything has its place. Ugly is an unfortunate personalisation that allows for indifference to and exploitation of nature.
