Hello everyone! This is my first photo here. Hope you'll like it. :)

Actually I don't know what species of caterpillar this is. I found it on linden in front of my house. It was very lively so I took it home with some twigs. Then using tripod and diffuser for built-in flash I made some photos. After all I returned the caterpillar freedom :) Sorry my bad english :D

Hello Skygge.
Welcome on TN with your first post and it's really a close up. The feet are magnificant sharp.
Perhaps you can tell us more about this caterpillar and how you made the capture.
Looking forward to your future posts.

Hello Skygge,
Welcome to TN!
Nice perspective in your first picture. I like the colours, texture and pseudopods in the catterpillar. Only a bit out of focus on top.

Techniquement c'est une belle macro. Le cadrage original est fort réussi.

Dobry poczatek, czekam na wiecej.
Fotka makro - super.

Wonderful photo, incredibly good macro of the feet. I don't know how you could increase the DOF any more (I can't even go to 22 on my camera) but it would have been nice to see the whole body in focus.

Welcome to TrekNature, this is a fantastic start!


Hi Skygge,
Great extreme close-up here! Wonderful colours and great details. i like its legs a lot. Superb presantation with your framing. Great bg and use of flash also.
BRAVO! and welcome to TN :-9

A beautiful first post. Incredibly artistic and creative.
Not too sure about the poor chap being taken away, but all turned out well in the end.
Superb dof, great stuff.
Thanks for posting and welcome to TN.

Hello Skygge Skygge :-)
Welcome to TN! This is a wonderful first post, a very artistic approach to macro photography and a beautiful shot. You've captured perfect textures and that almost translucent body. Perfect exposure with excellent light and shadow, it really is an excellent piece of work.

Welcome to TN - what a wonderful start to your time here. I really like the idea of only showing part of the caterpillar and your symmetry here is excellent.

Hi Skygge,
A beautiful and eye-catching close-up. Light and details are superb. As usual, I can not believe that this organized cells can rearrange and form a butterfly. So good details remains me this miracle
