Isn’t it amazing how the colour of the caterpillars so matches the colour of the broccoli.
As I purchased the broccoli in a plastic wrapper, with the price marked down, I wonder how many shoppers had spotted the caterpillars and decided not to buy, before the creatures crawled out of view to convince me I had a bargain.
You got them like this from the supermarket?
Well, at least you know there’s no poison on it 😉
They sell lots of organic produce in the supermarkets here, and it’s not too expensive now more people are buying it. But, hopefully, there will soon be loads of produce from the allotment, too.
Talk about finding the bright spot! As always, thanks for making me smile.
I’m always so glad to make you smile 🙂
Caterpillars are having a feast! 🙂
They should think themselves lucky. In some countries, they’d be treated as delicacy — a complete meal combined with the broccoli!
Yike caterpillars, not my favorite kind of delicacy…. hahaha but I love broccoli!
I think in some countries they enjoy eating all sorts of delicacies we’d consider unpalatable, such as salted woodlouse!
