In April last year, we shared photographs of a unique procession on our Estate. In a phenomenon known as ‘processionary caterpillars’ – the larval stage of the reticulate bagnest moth (Anaphe reticulata) – a large number of caterpillars form a line, nose-to-tail. You can read more about that, and see photos, here.

Resident, Lynn Dury, who took the initial photographs, was kind enough to update us: the caterpillars have finally come out of their cocoons.

How absolutely wonderful to witness this development. Yet another reason why life on Simbithi is simply magical.
