A time lapse of pine processionary caterpillars

While walking to a popular Perth fishing spot, I noticed a long line of processionary caterpillars crossing the footpath so I got out the trusty Canon 5D and grabbed some time lapses of the little critters doing their thing. I was amazed how they followed the exact route that the front caterpillar was making as you can see while they scale the wall!

From Dirk Nienaber of Stargazer Pictures in Western Australia, a time lapse of pine processionary caterpillars.
