Kinda nasty to look at, but also very interesting to look at. Especially the see through kind of skin. You've captured great details and colors.

This is one great shot.
Most unusual. Never seen one so close. It looks alive,
yes, ALIVE on my screen.
You have captured a great amount of details.
Very well composed & presented.
Loved your notes too.
Best regards, Mario.
Fantastic - don't see many images like this. Great colour and subject. Very well taken.

I see you swiched subjects: birds to insects.
Great close up you caught here.
so this is how they maye those "Allien" movies serie, huh? ;-)
Well done Dave.
Nice sharp detail and I like the translucent quality of the larva, giving a great look inside..
I will say that F/36 is perhaps a tiny bit of over-kill..F/16 here would've been plenty..
You know I'm not gonna leave ya alone ;)
Happy Holidays mf.

This is a really unusual post. You caught very good details on this larva as we can see trough its skin. It is interesting to see it in its natural habitat. This is an instructive post. Well done and TFS,

Nature is so strange, who thought up all this stuff? There is a use for everything!

This is actually a Lucanid (Stag beetle) larva, due to the shape of it's... "rear". These are much more of a rarity though, so it was a nice find.
