Bonsoir Arnaud,
Très contente de revoir une de tes photos. Cela faisait presque deux ans!! Tu nous montres une petite chenille, bien spéciale par sa couleur et qui semble se plaire sur cette mauve (malva, comme le précise Ori). Malheureusement je ne peux pas te donner de nom, mais j'espère que quelqu'un pourra aider.
J'espère qu'on te reverra de temps à autre sur ce site.
Bonne soirée

Hallo Arnaud
What a delightful view. The details of both the flower and the insect are just eye-catching and I cannot say the one is better than the other. It will be interesting to know what kind of insect it is, as it is really beautiful, with really lovely colours and detailed markings. Indeed a great shot. The combination of colours and the detail on the flower is great. A most appealing and bright and sunny sight. You have used the light well, emphasizing the details of this insect well. Thanks for sharing. I appreciated this one very much.
Kind regards
