Red Admiral caterpillar makes it's protective tent

I discovered a Red Admiral caterpillar just starting to make it's protective tent by fastening two Nettle leaves together with silk. It's not often you actually see this process as it happens, so i decided to film the event. The speed of the film has been increased x4. The caterpillar took just ten minutes to complete the structure.......Incredible!
