Caption: Pine processionary (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) caterpillars on the ground in a characteristic line. The circle may form due to confusion in the procession. Caterpillars simply follow the caterpillar in front, and once they are in a circle like this, they can carry on walking until they die of exhaustion. Filmed in Dominica, Caribbean.
