I've still never seen one of those

Lots of EHMs though

 

That's surprising, nut.....they usually drop from the host plant/s to the ground about this time of year, then burrow into the soil for the winter. They then emerge as a fully developed moth in the spring.......I see loads.

 I suppose this is about as good as it gets, Lyn....still far from beautiful, for me.

I agree, I have them as well, beautiful caterpillar.

 

One I took earlier, not sure everyone would describe it as 'beautiful'.

We do get our 'Mike' problems here  and I've never liked Mike Tucker either.

Uploading Photos

I don't seem to have the toolbar or any facility to upload photos, can someone tell me where to find it please?

 

Nooze - In your account (top right of the page) try clicking on 'settings', scroll down to 'forum settings'.......note if your settings are set for 'basic editor' or 'advanced editor'. If it's set to 'basic editor', click 'advanced editor'....this should give you a toolbar above your message box.

As for uploading pics, I find it easier & quicker to transfer them from PhotoBucket, rather than from my PC.

SweetPea and Verdun sorry to hear about your situations.  I'm pretty naff at handling this stuff, but will sent my best wishes anyway.

Take care.

Tottenham 0 Liverpool 3  Rather unexpected as Tottenham (under their new manager) are doing very well.
