I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

A morning visitor on the patio door, this European Mantis doesn't seem to realise it's camouflage doesn't work on white UPVC.

Processional caterpillars are on the march. Seen at Quinta da Balaia earlier

If you don't know about them, do not touch. They also have a nasty habit of dropping out of trees.

The plant is apparently one of these - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agave_americana

It flowers only once , towards the end of its thirty year lifespan, which is maybe why we don't see it very often in this form.
