photographing and learning about wildlife
Tiny little larve/beetle creatures, fully black and glossy, some hairs on the body, if you look very closely you can see they have little black heads and little black legs, looking a lot like caterpillars.
Seen in woodland undergrowth on large leaf foliage.
I am sure that these are Alder leaf beetle larvae... although the distribution does not seem to include Africa... but they are all the world like them, I cannot find anything else.
