Don't you think this cocoon is interesting?

For me, it looks like those cocoons form science ficcion movies. So interesting. Well, once butterflies are boycotting me, I have to take them while they are this way, before they go flying.

I have another fase of the same morphing. Click here

Belle et intéressante composition macro-photographique bien réalisée pour cette chenille et l'étrange cocon.
Intersting & Well Done !

Very interesting cocoon. It seems hasn't finished yet.
Thank you for sharing.

Ole Marcos!
this is very interesting and original shot!
I'm really impressed. Thank you for this great photo.

Obrigado por compartir ista imaxe con nos.
E increible como a oruga semella estar suspendida no aire dentro do capullo. Tinha que ser moi pequena para que o teu F:2.8 seja tan efectivo. Bon travalho.

What a great capture, Marcos. A cocoon in the making. I wonder what kind of caterpillar it is, and what it is going to turn into. Very interesting picture indeed. TFS. : )

Very interesting image Marcos. I have never seen anything like this before. Yes, I agree, it does look like something from a SciFi movie. I like your note... it made me smile :-)

I certainly does look like its from a SF movie. Very interesting image, not seen this early construction phase before, you were lucky to find it. Well done.

muito boa a imagem

Fascinating shot Marcos. I have a few shots of caterpillars in spun sheets but I don't think they are cocoons, more like places to hide in out of the way of predators. It is rather like something out of sci-fi but also like something in the Tate gallery. TFS :)

Your second post on the same subject led me to this one. Very interesting post and evolution sequences. I've never seen it like that yet. Very good contribution to TN, Marcos.

Hi Vini!
Just a pitty that you stopped photographing.
