I wanted this one bad. I put it out there that I was going to push for a PB today. Yes, the course is flat and fast'. But there is no respite at all. No uphill to help you recover. You are on the limit the whole 10k. And with my heart rate averaging 163bpm...on the limit I was 🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️ Reckon there's a #sub40 in me though 👊👊 •
2 years since I ran a hard 10k and went for a PB and managed to take over 2 mins off my last PB. 3rd year in a row doing this one and already mad to come back next year. @traleeharriersannualruns
Smashing event, reckon I'm gonna have to target the marathon next year 🏃🏼♂️😜 • 📸📸 Thank you to @agentsal for bringing my 2 lovelies to see me running and finishing. Love seeing them on the course. Love the 3 of ye so much. •
Next race is not til October...need to rectify that 😜🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️ •
Sticking with caterpillars, an elephant hawkmoth caterpillar, Deilephila elpenor, to go with the adult I posted during the summer. This caterpillar is another striking example of eyespot mimicry - when attacked, it will rear up slightly and widen the anterior portion of its body, making the spots more prominent and almost resembling a tiny snake. Since the caterpillar will generally be partly concealed, a would-be predator's reflexes will take over in the split second of the reveal and cause it to take evasive action, buying the caterpillar time to make its escape. This individual can be seen making its way down the stem of a great willowherb plant, Epilobium hirsutum. While it is not an exclusive food plant throughout its range, in this part of the world it is almost always found on members of the genus Epilobium, or occasionally on bedstraws of the genus Galium. Caterpillars take about a month from emergence to pupate at the base of a plant or in litter or soil, where they will remain over the winter until emerging the following year in late spring. #wildlifebiology#entomology#lepidoptera#caterpillars#moths#mothsofinstagram#mothcaterpillar#mimicry#eyespot#hawkmoth#insects#insectsofinstagram#nature#naturephotography#traleebaywetlands#tralee
