I am still researching to identify what animal this caterpillar might turn into. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Billy,a nice macro colours and brigthness very good beautiful work.


This is nice Billy. I really like the upside down pose. The white contrasts nicely with all the greens. Exposure and sharpness are very good. The simple composition with the diagonals is very effective.

hello Billy,
You seem to have the white pendant to your dark neighbour! Really funny. Excellent picture too. The Id of caterpillars are so difficult to find.
Thanks ans best regards

Great shot - wonderful details. :)
Since you're a native Texan (so blessed!) do you remember when we were kids we had those hairy caterpillars that stung that we called Willy Worms. Wonder what they were.

Hi Billy,

Fantastic macro shot with amazingly vivid colours. Don't know what it is, or what it'll become, but I do know that you've captured it well.

Thanks for sharing,


Hi Billy, splendi caterpillar with great details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Excellent closeup. The subdued light produces a good effect on the caterpillar and the leaves. Well done.


Hello Billy !
I amquite fond of hairy caterpillars, and this one sispecially beautiful ! Unfortunately, I don't know which butterfly he will turn into. Excellent details, splendid composition and POV, nice natural colors, and a wonderful blurred BG. Very well done !

Hi Billy,

Nice photo, might be a Yellow Bear (Spilosoma virginica) caterpillar. They're variable in color, some are white.


The uncluttered look and framing are a strength with this composition. The green tones are attractive and the fine detail of the caterpillar is not over sharpened.
