incredible "batuffolo" with excellent details
compliments for the great quality for a
so little animal
What a cute caterpillar! Very good POV and composition, sharp details, good lighting and beautiful colours. What a pity that some day this turns to an ugly butterfly;o)

The most deceptive caterpillar I have ever seen, Selen. Gives the impression of a Bottlebrush flower with those long hair and red head.
Excellent image in both technical and documentary terms.
TFS and regards.

I wonder if you ever saw that move with Sean Connery, Medicine Man....sometimes I think if you as the still photographer on that set..I have many loves in movie for these areas including but not limited to the prior but also Mosquito coast....there are more...and You are as brave as a soldier in Vietnam in the early 1960's who went up the Delta in small boats...the VC used different weapons..no blow guns...Chinese made weapons..not the best but much more deadly...believe me... I know...and so to get these images I am always surprised..perhaps you ignore the dangers or pretend they are not there...today in the latest Archaeology magazine I read of man who was climbing on the Pakistan/Afghan border in search of soap stone......wow...and he was an American as well..much more courage and stamina than I but I am still able to admire...

As for the ID I am sure that it is an alien from very little an unknown planet ;-) Fantastic caterpillar and very good shot. Great sharpnes, nice diagonal compo, perfect OOF background

This is almost unbelievable!
It seems more a piece of art that a living creature.
Love absolutely the colour contrast here, and how don't do it, that red really stands out of the picture, and the delicate white hairs makes of it very strange insect.
Excellent all the technical side, as well as the composition.
My compliments and thanks for share.

I'm glad you're showing us some of Peru's fantastic wildlife! This little caterpillar is so beautiful with its long fur coat and red hat! Great sharpness and lovely colours in this fine composition. I bet the long hairs would cause a rash if you touched them!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Merhaba Selen Hanım,
Hakikaten bu ne? Tırtıl demeyeceksiniz herhalde. Yeşil bir yaprak üzerindeki hareketli bir çiçek derseniz daha çok inanırım:)
Olağanüstü bir kare.

Hahahaa that is one funny-lookin' caterpillar! :-))
It is incredibly hairy!!
Great sharpness, composition, BG and POV.
Well done, Selen!

It is difficult to believe that those beautiful fluffy hairs can cause so much pain to the touch, until you have actually touched it and first hand experience why these hairy caterpillars are also called burn worms.
A beautiful specimen you have captured here with excellent details and stunning colours. The simplistic composition ensures that all focus and attention remains strictly on the subject.
Well done and TFS.

Un notable y hermosa oruga, me fascinan esos pelos extra largos y su intenso color carmín en la cabeza, nunca vi algo así. La foto muy bien lograda como es usual en ti. Felicitaciones

A pumpkin with a flower.
I still have no idea what it is either....but it sure is taken with a nice DOF.
Definitely the right lighting used.
Wishing you the best.

Outstanding shot of this interesting looking caterpillar. It indeed looks like a brush with a red head. Immaculate sharpness and details on its spikes and you have put the flash to expert use here. Excellent DOF, POV and composition.Thanks for sharing this fine image.

A truly fantastic species...wow!
It's great that people like you have the opportunity to travel and take such amazing shots to share with us :)
This particular fellow here looks like he needs a bit of a styling :) I would recommend a little trip and maybe a go for the "old but never too old" Billy Idol look :))
Seriously now, this is an excellent macro, with great details on the subject and a superb blurry and contrasting BG. Lovely work!
Bravo and TFS

This one is really cute! White-red caterpillar looks very original. This colours mosaic is very unique in insects, especially larvae. And moreover, in this species so long setae are present. It is a pitty that we do not know species name, but I think that this is caterpillar of moth not butterfly :)

Very well composed pic with the OOF BG and DOF being shallow. It gives more detail to the subject. The picture is sharp and clear.
