Grids?

Ok, so what is a grid really? One definition says:

a network of lines that cross each other to form a series of squares or rectangles.

If you just take the first part, I have plenty of photos… A network of lines that cross each other …

How about criss-crossing branches with a cute squirrel in their midst?

Or criss-crossing grass stems with a confused-looking Dock Bug trying to make his way through the delicate grass flowers?

Hmm so neither of those really say grid do they? What about this then … thinking outside the box – the National Grid – electricity. All this barbed wire is to keep people from climbing up this pole and getting zapped. Doesn’t seem to put off the Sparrows though.

Ok, so that was stretching things somewhat.

On digging deeper though my photograph collection I found some photos which actually have real grids in them!

A daffodil trying to escape through a fence grid:

A Common Blue Damselfly resting on a grid on the board walk at Cors Caron:

And one of the strangest caterpillars I’ve seen – a Fox Moth caterpillar (again on the board walk at Cors Caron). This one’s worth clicking on to take a closer look. It looks like it’s been and had its hair done – all neatly wrapped round and tucked in, rather than sticking out all spiky like some of the less sophisticated caterpillars! 😉
