A Tiger Moth Caterpillar

Spotted this caterpillar on the underside of a butterbur leaf in the Serpentine Walk. I think that it is the caterpillar of the ruby tiger moth - Phragmatobia fuliginosa. I'm more familiar with the much darker garden tiger moth caterpillar commonly called 'woolly bear', although its numbers seemed to have declined over recent years.

Impressive Clouds Over Leven

Cloud formations over Leven viewed from the Massney Braes in Lundin Links. Patches of blue still visible and beneath the darker clouds the sun still lighting up the sky. Unfortunately the dark clouds soon moved overhead and a soaking ensued.

Walking towards Dumbarnie Links noticed that the sandy bank at the top of the beach had partially collapsed leaving the root system of this small tree completely exposed.
