I was up on the roof of our office building the other day, the reason being that a photographer wanted to get some city skyline shots. While I was waiting around, I began studying the various flora that has taken root between the slabs of concrete — dandelions, tufts of grass and other stuff I couldn’t identify.
It was then that I realised we had fauna as well as flora in the shape of dozens of bright orange and black striped caterpillars that were stripping the leaves off one particular plant or weed. If you click on the photo above you can have a closer look.
I’d love to know what type of butterfly they will blossom into, but I couldn’t find anything remotely like them on the web, so if anyone can help, please do. That goes for the plant too.
