Weekly Photo Challenge, Cover Art

Weekly Photo Challenge, Cover Art For this week’s Photo Challenge, stimulate your creative process and imagine which of your images you would like to see gracing the cover of a book, an album, or a magazine.


We cut down a banana tree to harvest the bananas, and found this creature under one of the leaves. If my research is correct, it is a caterpillar of the owl butterfly, a beautiful, large butterfly that we see frequently in our yard.


I think the white bits are some sort of pollen. When we discovered him the leaf had been lying in the grass, and we saw these spots on his body and the leaf as well.

Our new friend is now in a large plastic jar on the table. He apparently spend a fair amount of time last night munching on the banana leaf. This morning i gave him some new fresh leaves, and we will see how he does. If he makes a cocoon and morphs into a butterfly, that will be totally cool!

    EEEK! I’ve been writing, off and on, about the bugs and spiders that are plaguing me in Kentucky, USA. Oh my, except for maybe one spider, you have me “beat” there. That’s one competition I’m happy to lose. 🙂


    • Oh dear! LOL Actually we have a lot of very different and strange looking bugs here, but we have actually had much less trouble with them than anywhere we lived in the US. This interesting one is destined to turn into a very large and beautiful butterfly.


  4. Very clever cover. I like the article “Safety in the Shower.” lol
