Odd little destroyer... wonderful capture! Shame you couldn't have kept the whole guy in focus, but the effect is nice and the head is sharp! I hope they don't cause too much damage! TFS

Hello Josh,
A very interesting caterpillar with some wild looking hair. I would have thought that an f/8 would have given you a little more DOF, but evidently this time it just wasn't enough.
I really like the super sharp focus on the head area, but if you could have gotten just a tad more on the body it would have made a world of differance. I love to view caterpillar photos so keep on shooting. TFS.
