Hi dear Janice,
Good evening, neighbour... I guess it must be evening over there in NZ, here in Europe it's noon at this moment. Excellent macro capture, perfect sharpness of the caterpillar, even on the closer antenna. Great natural colors and very good composition, only the caterpillar, the greenery and the smoothy, light blue bg which doesn't lead the viewers' eyes off of the "pre-insect". Beautiful shot, congrats, Madame.
Best regards from Hungary, László

hello neighbour look out for the spider
you have a beautiful coloured picture
good details and good sharpness
Just beautifull. One of most impressive pictures of Monarch caterpillar I've ever seen. Perfect POV, colours, sharpness and details. This must be great fun to breed these beautifull insects!
Spring! Sunny days but still very cold mornings.

Strange to read that 'autumn is here'. Spring is just starting here.
Superb coloured photo of this caterpillar. Great saturation and clarity. Fantastic sharpness and composition.

Always a good sign. I have only seen these on TN...but I rarely if ever have seen one which is not true to its colours and always shot from similar angles...not to diminish anything..but I sure would love to get one like this...Happy Fall:-)

Once again a most delightful and colourful image. The image is sharp and reflect great detail and focus. I think this image deserves each smiley still to be awarded. The markings, patterns and texture on the body are impressive. Your framework is splendidly done and your display is excellently handled. Thanks for sharing.
