Hello Manee,
Well framed in good lighting. Good job.

unvelivable creature, TFS Ori

Hi Manee,
Very strange kind of caterpillar. Has it covered itself with its own web, or this is the way it looks like.
Thanks a lot for sharing this strange creature.

Hi manee,

Very weired looking caterpillar, never seen it before. Look like some kind mee or 'tempeh' (soy bean fermentations) that are wrap in banana leave here in Malaysia.
Very good exposure of white subject.

Hi Manee

I thought this was just a piece of cotton or something in the thumbnail, then I opened it up and its a caterpillar; amazing. Its hard to believe this is real.
I think this is the most spectacular caterpillar I've ever seen and well captured too!

Fantastic caterpillar, the Photo gives me the impression that it is about to pull the leaf over itself like an envelope and the "cotton" will become the cocoon inside the leaf, you have captured two points where the silk is attached to the leaf. Do you know which butterfly it becomes?
Thank you.

Hi Manee,
excellent, his exotic caterpillar with the waxy fibers. The white colour has been mastered well, there is no overexposure.
Best regards

Hello Manee,

It may be caterpillar of "Gangara thyrsis thyrsis"

Surely anyone can mistake for all other possibilities than a caterpillar. Well composed and good colors.

Thanks for sharing

Hello Manee!
This is a very original in shape and colours caterpillar. I like a lot this unique creature.
Picture has good sharpness, DOF and contrast, even if light was a little to strong I believe, and because of that some white reflections are too strong :)
Anyway, very unique and interesting presentation!
Best greetings from Poland,
