Caterpillar (5) 1

Hanging by threads of (silk?) from a hedge along with numerous other caterpillars, many of them much lighter in colour. Butterflies in area were predominantly small white and orange tip but also included peacock, tortoiseshell, comma and green veined white.
One end of many threads was anchored to the ground but most caterpillars seemed to be trying to climb up rather than down
