Nolid Moth Caterpillar (Chloephorinae, Nolidae)
The swollen thorax of these caterpillars is believed to be mimicking unpalatable berries as a deterrent against hungry birds. Locally these are mass infestation larvae responsible for entire tree defoliation.
Although very common at this time of year, they pose a photographic challenge in that, undisturbed (and if not eating), they adopt regal poses (head and tails raised) individually and as groups. The slightest disturbance (and because they usually reside on the underside of leaves) such as moving foliage to catch the best angle, they either flatten out and vomit green fluid which tends to spoil the shot, or they throw themselves into space on a silk thread lifeline to resume their positions when danger has passed.

prince of tennis kissing meme
two pots that would potentially share the best kiss: shinya and atsushi
two pots that would potentially share the worst kiss: mizuki and atobe
I don’t think I ever told you about these
thinking deeply about the last post i reblogged
it is true though. the prince of tennis anime has been going on for 10+ years without any significant breaks; after the original run on tv, there were ova episodes, and when there weren’t ova episodes, there were always fun little things like the pairpuri dvds to keep us entertained in-between.
i am very grateful to know that prince of tennis keeps delivering ridiculousness and that there’s always something to look forward to!!!!!! it is such a fun fandom to be a part of. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy
my initial liveblogging of bunbun ala carte was purely powered by the excitement of a new marui cd.
i actually found all of the songs pretty dull and unremarkable and i haven’t listened to any of them in months ;__;
