In our bike trip Kharkiv – Karlivka – Komsomolsk – Potoki, the idea to capture such a scene was of my grandson Anton. In the picture you can see a colony of caterpillars of Lymantriidae family of moths. Maybe they are the Brown-tails (Euproctis chrysorrhoea) or Satin Moths (Leucoma salicis).
The place is near the village of Ozera (Lakes) in the Kobelyatskiy Raion of Poltavska Oblast.

nice details of the caterpillars making a curious pattern with an abstract mood. I guess I would put a black bar in the upper and lower side, concentrating the view in the central part of the compo. anyway it is nice this way too.

Looking at the thumbnail, I wondered what this was, and when I opened it, I was awed by the wonders of nature !
Great close-up of this colony which has devoured most of the green leaves around. It had better not be in a fruit or vegetable garden !
I like the way you have caught the sun through the pattern !
I am not surprised your grandson wanted to take the picture, and I think it's great that he accompanies you on your cycling trips. What a great school of life !
Thanks for sharing.
