Very nicely capturing this interesting caterpillar. I cannot say caterpillar is beautiful, but this picture is! Sharp and very neat. Blurry BG is nice. Great shot.

Colour palette of your beautiful shot is rich and astonishing. BG is excellent blurred and amazing. Captured insect is seldom for me. I have never seen such specimen. Details and sharpness of foreground are perfect. Also exposure and contrast.
My friend Serge Miclo (Pictures_Collec: http://www.treknature.com/members/Pictures_Collec) advised me to avoid right angles. If the caterpillar would be a bit inclined, may be it would be better. Though I am not assured.
TFS and my best regards.

Wow, this fellow must be Swedish - he's the colour of our flag! Very unusual colour for a caterpillar. Great sharp shot against the nicely coloured background.

Hi JC, what an amazing coloured caterpillar. Good details and exposure. Never seen a blue one before. TFS.

Very special color and the texture looks like pastic! I don't think birds want to eat it, so it is a good survival trick!
Well done and TFS

I wonder if the butterfly will be as beautiful.The details are really good and the colours are well saturated.I like the way you composed and presented the photo. TFS

Yes, it is beautiful and eye catching. Good POV with camera placement paralel to the subject, nicely blurred background. The blue color of the caterpillar is very beautiful, but I doubt it's safe. I think birds must love it since it's fairly easy to spot. Maybe it's poisonous, though...

Amazing colours on this catterpillar!
Great composition also.
Very well done.
Thanks for sharing.
My best regards,
wow, that's a ncie one :)
yep, Osmeterium is right, it's a sawfly larva (Tenthredinidae), not a caterpillar - the difference lies in the supplementary legs
they are often very colourful and sposematic and some species aggregate to enhance the repulsive effect

Hello Jitti !
Wow, what a caterpillar ! I have never seen a blue one before, really amazing ! And you have captured him so nicely ! Sharpness, details, exposure, composition, POV, everything is excellent. I wonder what he will look like once he turned into a butterfly... Very well done !

Amazing capture, what colours.
I have to agree with Artur, I think its a sawfly larvae not a catapillar. TFS
