This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Twins.
I started thinking about some of the pairs and doubles I have photographed over the years. After a while I started writing them down as the list was getting quite long and I didn’t want to overlook any when making my selection for the challenge.
Two Maple leaves.
Two Great Crested Grebes.
Two Oxeye Daisies.
Two Sandhill Cranes.
Two Fly Agaric fungi.
Two Large White Butterfly caterpillars.
Two pieces of grass sticking out of the snow.
Little and large Large White Butterfly caterpillars.
One Word Sunday: Size.
One from the archives taken in Cheshire in the 1980s. It shows two Large White Butterfly caterpillars on Nasturtium leaves.
I can’t explain the difference in size between the two unless they hatched from different groups of eggs. I had seen a female Large White Butterfly egg laying on the Nasturtium plant and photographed the eggs. I later photographed the eggs hatching and the tiny caterpillars exploring the leaf they hatched on. So I’d have thought that those caterpillars would be similar sizes unless they grow at different rates.
The Daily Post one word prompt is Explore.
Some newly hatched Large White Butterfly caterpillars exploring the leaf they hatched out on.
