Hi Ricardo!

Strange caterpillar, but which oneisn't ;-) ? I like dark BG and detailed subject. Part of body is OE but this is minor fault.

Interesting looking catapillar, looks like a big bird dropping (poo), which is probably what its trying to achieve. Well done.

Good morning Ricardo!
I don't know how I feel about waking up to this...;-( But, this I know: It is another excellent macro of an interesting and strange looking caterpillar...;-)
Well done!

Hi Ricardo,
Another excellent caterpillar shot. Excellent composition and framing. This guy has great colors and textures on his body. I love that black backround that isolates him so well.

Hello Ricardo, As with your last post, this is very well isloated from the black BG. It has sharp detail with great DOF..As stated, just a tiny bit OE on the white. Well done.
Thank You!

Like your previous one this was well shot. Nice and sharp. Reminds me also of a cream doughnut.

Hi Ricardo,
Very little time tonight. Well worth a big green smile.
Thanks for posting
