04/09/19 - I also found this little fella in amongst the stems 😄 - I think it’s a swallowtail caterpillar 🐛 but not fully sure, he looked quite happy munching away! #caterpillar #swallowtailcaterpillar #wildlifewednesday #crithmum #crithmum-maritimum #crithmummaritimum #rocksamphire #holidayfind #notmygarden #greece 🇬🇷 #seafennel

Yes, I try to tolerate them when I’m back home Kerry, but sometimes there are too many though and so I know what you mean - take the sawfly larvae as an example 🙈 @kez001uk

@richard.spicer.7906 definitely no softly softly approach with sawfly caterpillars. They’re just horrible 😣😡

04/09/19 - Afternoon 👋🏼 - I found out my exam results came out today, and now I have a dilemma whether to check them online or wait till I get home 🤷🏼‍♂️ - so to take my mind off it a bit I went for another wander on the wild side and came across this large umbellifer in the middle of the coastal rocks. I think it’s Crithmum maritimum, which is apparently native to parts of the Mediterranean - it was covered in pollinators too 🦋🐝🐜 👌🏼
