[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caterpillars are the larval form of members of the order Lepidoptera (the insect order comprising butterflies and moths). They are mostly herbivorous in food habit, although some species are insectivorous. Caterpillars are voracious feeders and many of them are considered to be pests in agriculture. Many moth species are better known in their caterpillar stages because of the damage they cause to fruits and other agricultural produce.

Hello Foozi,
Nice macro of this caterpillar taken from a rear view and showing the rear end with fine sharpness and natural colours. One ought to see the head to try an ID, but I guess this is a butterfly caterpillar, probably a species of Nymphalid.
The markings give a false impression of eyes, which deceives a predator.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Foozi
An excellent point of view, great detail, suitable background matching the caterpillar.
Lovely photo!
regards yiannis

Hello Foozi

WOW ! I have missed this green Caterpillar from you,
great shot with the frontal POV, great camouflage,
if you would post the photo the insect smaller
in the image you would force the human eye
to search it on the image, TFS


Salam Foozi.
This is beautiful green caterpillar captured from the rear end. The plane of focus captured well the white hairy details of the caterpillar and the leaf. Pleasing tonal range and well done indeed.
