Confused Ok team, poor picture 'cos it was after 10pm when out with the geo-pup and I only had the phone with me.
This nettle plant was covered with 'caterpillars' about 12mm long. Only one other plant had about half of what's here but I didn't see any others affected. There were plenty of nettles around, so what are they going to turn into?

Tortoiseshell Butterflies. They're very keen on nettles.
