Great documentary capture! I was reading about this phenomenon many times, but I have never seen it in the wild :) You were lucky to observe it in nature :)
TFS and have a nice week!

interessante immagine di Processionaria del pino, che mostra perfettamente il motivo del nome di questo lepidottero i cui bruchi si trasferiscono in una lunga "processione", eccellente POV e ottima documentazione con note molto istruttive.

When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought you present us a snake. Now, this is a funny and a strange snake! I like this simple, yet pleasant and somehow humerous picture very much.Together with the very instructive notes, this is a valuable and interesting posting.

interesante captura y original procesión...
es que cada uno se lo monta a su manera. :)
Gracias por tu comentario por lo del puerto.
Los de turno(políticos y afines) se representan a si mismos, tienen el poder que no la razón, y si pleiteas por algo, la cosa se eterniza, el tiempo corre a su favor,tu no pueden manter un "pleito" ellos tienen el dinero que usan de nuestros impuestos.
Así la "razón" cae del mismo lado siempre, o casi...

they are fascinating caterpillars, the procession moths. You choose a good perspective. There are few pictures like this to be found on the net.
You may know that Jean Henri Fabre reported about experiments with these insects. He demonstrated that all caterpillars except the first one follow a silken thread laid down by the foregoing animals. He had a procession climb up a plant pot; they then travelled on the rim and the first animal was finding the thread after a round--and the whole sprocession circled for 16 hours if I remember it right.
KMy best regards

It's really amazing - it looks almost like a train ;-)
I've never seen something like that before...
