Beautiful shot, Frank!

I like your interesting picture with caterpillar. Photos are very detailed, well exposed and have great colors Composition are excellent.

Frank, you are at the right place and the right moment!

It's a excellent macro
In a friendly way Christophe

Hello Frank
Great Shot with this impressive composition !
May be F36 is to close and produce some dispersion (And you can loose in sharpness)
Look the excellent macros of PDP and the Diaph Apertures !
I've tried doing F16 Than F32 and I've win in sharpness and general image quality.


What amazing eyes you have!

Nice detail and POV, pehaps we could see an adult sometime.

Hope you can post many more amazing creatures from Indonesia.

Impressive pose!

Excellent shot. Very good details with plenty of light, for a 1/500 with f36, I guess you have a nice flash :)
Superb DOF
Very well done. I like a lot.

Absolutely wonderfull Macro.

Composition, detail, colours... all deserve compliments.

Greetings, Arjuna
