Many people love butterflies, but hate caterpillars!  However, to get adult butterflies we must first have caterpillars!

Caterpillars can turn into moths as well as butterflies.

Below is a gallery of caterpillars photographed at Gilberton.

If you wish to contribute a picture to these galleries, please email your local nature photographs to David Whiting ( along with permission to display the photograph and the location, date taken and photographers name.
