Good macro Ricardo!
Interesting looking caterpillar!

Thanks for sharing!

Ésta es otra oruga hermosa de tu colección, Ricardo. Gracias por demostrarla a nosotros.

Saludos, Petru

do u know why ur image stands out? because of it's black background. did u bring it in ur studio? :) excellent compo & color.

Beautiful colours and detail. I would be tempted to rotate the composition diagonally. But I don't know if you have enough room to work with.

Very good job Ricardo!
Very nice BG!
Good details of the caterpillar!
Very good colours too!

Wonderful photo, composition and technically wise! Thanks for sharing - Xplorator Radu

Very good detail and DOF Ricardo. Well isolated from the black BG. May I make a suggestion? Try using a small plastic, opaq lotion bottle or such, slit on one side, over your in-camera flash to diffuse the light. It works well in macro closeups such as this, to diffuse, fill and soften the light.
Well done & Thank You!

Hi Ricardo,
I don't know where you find all these great caterpillar shots, but I think there great. The exposure from you fill flash looks really good in this one. Very nice saturated colors and the detail is very sharp. They are alsways so well isolated with the black backrund. You can just feel the texture in this shot. Well done!

Hola Ricardo.
I love this picture.
Excellent composition Good color and definition. Excellent POV.
Thank you and Regards
PS. Tienes un portafolio increible

Hola Ricardo,
otra hermosa oruga, muy bonitos colores y manchas. Tal vez un poquitito menos de brillo la mejoraría.

Boa macro com bons detalhes, cores e composição!
Bom trabalho!
