I want to be a star! Chcę być gwiazdą!

My Friend just LOVES to take pictures of all these worms, insects, ugly little creatures that move around us no matter where we are. And of course the photo must be taken on macro function. The closer the better. I, on the other hand, hate these eyesores but this time one of them made us both laugh.

My friend spotted this green caterpillar first. It was walking around the edge of the wastepaper basket in the forest we had to cross to get to the dunes. I really wanted to pass it by but I knew the photoshooting was something that my friend wouldn't miss having this creature so close. I was certain the caterpillar would try to avoid lens as it was too close to it.

But I was completely wrong....You see the catepillar wanted to be famous....

The further the lens was from it, the stronger it wanted to be closer to it,lol!

Little forest star.

After 2km of walking we reached the entrance to the Slowinski National Park. We stopped at Łebsko lake to take a few pictures.

See this little white point just in the centre of the photo? This is our destination.

Okay, a bit closer. See now? Yes, that's one of the dunes.

All we had to do was to walk another 8,8km...

Tę zieloną gąsienicę spotkałyśmy w lasach Słowińskiego Parku Narodowego wędrując do wydm. Bardzo nas rozbawiła, bo byłyśmy przekonane, że zacznie uciekać od obiektywu jak najdalej, ona jednak bardzo chciała być gwiazdą...
Na panoramie jeziora Łebskiego możecie dostrzec prawie na samym środku maleńką białą kropkę. To cel naszej pieszej wędrówki. Jeszcze tylko 8,8km i będziemy na wydmach...

Actually my friend managed to take a close-up of it's face, but I don't have this photo yet, Christine.
8,8km were just a part of what we walked that day.;)

Dzięki Magdo! No ślicznie to ona pozowała, ale nie wiem czy ona śliczna.;D

What a funny little chap - I bet he was indeed waiting for you because he knew you would spread his picture all over the world. Now he's really a little star! ;O) And now I'm looking forward to reaching the dunes!
