Hello friends in TN,

Given that caterpillars are not themselves a species but just the in-between stage from butterfly or moth egg to pupa and then finally adult, they have made quite a name for themselves, especially as pests. Some of them are also so alien looking that one wonders where in the world they have come from.

Caterpillars belong to the Lepidoptera order, the insect order that is made up of butterflies and moths. Though the appearance and colouring of caterpillars can vary widely, common to most are their tubular, segmented bodies with three pairs of true legs and ten abdominal segments. They can have up to four pairs of prolegs (fleshy, stubby little structures coming out from the middle of the abdomen), making them quite the creepy crawlies. More....

Salam Jus
fuuh....country singer I guess with heave mousetache and long haired.
Excellent capture bro.


Strongly reminds me of those small dogs with such long hair they cover their eyes, Jusni. Some Chinese breed, I guess.
That this is a Caterpillar looks incredible.
It is a wonderful image and I like that wet look about it.

Helo Jusni,
Very nice macro of this caterpillar with an excellent sharp focus. A pity that there isn't more sharpness all over the caterpillar. Beautiful colours and the waterdrops are a fine bonus.

Hello Sir ...Its great pic...
The sharpness..colors and angle of the image is really nice ...

Hello Jusni,
Here we can watch a different type of Caterpillar.Nice sharpness and natural colour.Well framed too.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hello Jusni,
Now this is one hairy little caterpillar which you have captured on an obviously rainy day. Wonderful close-up of it's frontal view. It reminds me of a type of Tussock Moth caterpillar. Do you know what type it is?

Hello Jusni

Excellent macro of this insect with a fine POV
and the way you framed it, beautiful soft light,
excellent focus, sharpness, and details, TFS
