Alien tracks on nasturtium leaves!


By Fluff

Can anyone tell me whose been wandering over my nasturtium leaves & making these tracks?
Usually I get little green caterpillars from the Cabbage White butterfly (?) but I've not seen these before. There's also the white powdery residue near the centre of the leaf.
Note the screwdriver to hold them was extremely windy here today...need a wind turbine!




It's the larva of a leafminer. Won't do any harm, Fluff.
