Hello Luis,
Excellent caterpillar macro with great detail. Love the colorful but smooth background, and how the multiple feet are grasping the branch. Regards,

Hello Luis,
the caterpillar nicely fits into the frame. The background is smooth and non-distracting in spite of different colours. Point of view, focus and sharpness are pretty good.
Best wishes, Peter

The blur red in the background enhances the beauty of the green tones.
