The Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar

Went for a wander around the estate and spied this fat caterpillar that was feasting on one of the garden plants.

    Hey you, how ya doing, managed the journey home then, its pretty serious over in the flooded regions isnt it. large parts of this country have been flooded over the last few years but nothing on the Aussie scale, but its dire indeed when people lose their lives , homes and possessions is traumatic enough, but they at least can be replaced

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Yep sure did. Lea & I took two days to drive back, very leisurely. No flood issues on the trip. Only one spot that had major road damage and they had crews there trying to fix it.
    Still a fair bit of water lying around in paddocks but not flooded as such (not where we went anyway).
    Up north there's a lot of flooding still happening (my parents are visiting at the moment and would not be able to get home if they wanted to leave this week).
    As for deaths, most of the deaths that occur are from people doing the wrong thing. Floods like this rarely sneak up on you, but people feel the need to push their luck and try to cross flooded streams and then get washed away.
