As I said last week (but with different words) I’ve got gobs of photos of cosmoses. I like to say that because I like the sound in my mind of the plural of cosmos. It sounds like a disease, or at least a sickness. “I think I’m coming down with a mild case of cosmoses.” It also sounds a bit like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh – King Cosmoses was the great, great grandfather of the pharaoh Amenhotep. Anyway, here are three more cosmoses.
Do you like woolly worms? Check out this giant leopard moth caterpillar. It’s the moth and not the caterpillar that is giant. The caterpillar is characterized by its black woolly appearance and red bands around the body. You can’t see the bands in this photo but a few specks of red do show through.
Once he curled up, which stretched apart the spines, the fairly attractive red bands became easy to see.
I consider this view from the other side more interesting than attractive.
Thank you for stopping by.
