a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

How Long

does 
it take
a
caterpillar
 to cross a rock?
Much longer than I ever dreamed.

These are really nice shots! I once watched a caterpillar crawl all the way up to the top of my bird bath, take a few sips of water, and then crawl all the way back down. It was one of the most interesting things I'd ever seen!

I too have watched them in the yard. I watched one, one evening as the sun was setting, crawl up the clothesline pole, get to the top and when the sun set, it crawled back down. I guess the caterpillar wanted to watch the sun set, as I did....:)

It's not only at a snail's pace but at a caterpillar's pace, too!

Perhaps it was warming up since the rock was in the sun. You know, not everything handles rocks like you do!!...:)JP

What a fuzzy fellow this caterpillar is. Very fun shots of it.

Bet it took an age to cross - but you have got some great shots here.

All the best Jan

They really are not driven by an inner clock to rush around like we are. They seem to appreciate their time, short though it may be.
