Hello Ricardo,
Haven't seen you your nice picture for a while. This one is excellent as usual. The caterpillar stands out from dark background. Spot on focus and exposure. Regards,

Hi Ricardo,
An excellent shot on this caterpillar. I love the composition. The exposure looks spot on with the beautiful colors and sharp detail. A nice dark dramatic backround really shows it well.

Hello Ricardo,
Too busy with my home work, I was a bit inactive on TN, so I am happy to discover your new superb photos. I like this nice caterpillar wich stand out against the dark BG. Exposure and sharpness are good. Perhaps a rotate of 30° for a diagonal composition... Useful note.
Bravo my friend and thanks for sharing.

Hola Ricardo,
Otra de tus típicas fotos de oruga. Una interesante y colorida especie. buen fondo oscuro; tal vez una toma de mas de cerca hubiera andado mejor, pero es solo mi parecer.
