Hello Lou
What a neat shot of this caterpillar surrounded by parasitic wasp cocoons. I have seen them covering the bodies of Tobacco Horn Worms before, but never like this. Super sharp and showing exceptional detail. Exposure looks perfect. Well done!!

Hallo Lou,
Weer een heel bijzondere. Wist niet dat ze ook parasitisch kunnen leven. Mooie foto zoals gebruikelijk.
