Things that hatch out in the night...

Tiny caterpillar like thingies.  Olympus Mju Mini

Ok, they actually hatched a few days ago, but they were so small and did not appear to be moving that I thought they had keeled over in the cold weather.

This entire cluster of eggs is really about 1" across and the little furry creepy crawlies are tiny and look more like caterpillar poo than caterpillars.

The eggs seem to have been laid sometime in Autumn or early Winter on the garage door so have done well to survive for so long.

It will be interesting to see what they eventually grow into;  I am hoping they will be small and cute rather than big and nasty.
