Morning and catepillar

First, I thought it was a 2-inch brown snake-- slowly crawling away from the road. As I approach, I realized that it was actually a long line of 24 caterpillars (yes, I counted them!) attached to each other. This is one of those frustrating moments wherein I want to kick myself for not bringing my camera.

No one saw it, aside from a couple of guys who maybe asked themselves what I was staring at. Then I made my way to the bus stop but not taking my eyes off these creatures. I got worried that they might be crushed by a pair of nike or some wedges. Then my fear turned into reality. I wanted to scream --HALT!! but it was too late. A pair of bike wheels was the culprit with the rider oblivious to what just had happened.

Whew, what a way to start the day!

24 caterpillars that attached each other? Wow, it wasn't a common view at all. And their life was very short also...

Wow that is pretty long and for caterpillar to do that? I know it's frustrating if we see something unique and pretty and we forgot to bring our camera, hehe!!

Wow, that was an amazing sight. Sayang di mo nakuhaan ng pic. But di bali, who knows someday you get another chance to see like that again.
