Hello Francisco,
I am always amazed at the patterns and shapes found amongst the caterpillars.
This one is rather unusual looking, with exceptional colors and designs.
Sharp details, good lighting, great POV.

Hello Francisco,
Another beauty from Brazil, well presented, with a very good light and sharpness. Best regards,

Hallo Francisco
What a beautiful caterpillar you share with us this time. The colours is just magic, just as much as the detail so beautifully displayed. This is a real special and colourful image. This is one of the reasons why I like it so much to be part of Trek Nature because you think you've seen it all and then another beauty (like yours) pops up on the gallery and you stand amazed from the start. Thanks for sharing this fascinating creature. Kind regards.
