Hi Jitti,

I never get to see caterpillars such as this except here on TN. You have captured this one perfectly in a wonderful position. The colors are beautiful and the details are razor sharp. Those spikes look like they could hurt! Great macro.

Hello Jitti
Wonderful caterpillar taken with great details adnd vivid colors

Hi Jitti

Excellent shot! What a crazy colour scheme, love the spines.
Excellent composition and sharpness.
Great DOF too.


Hallo Jitti
A very striking and vividly coloured caterpillar you presented to us. Features like the spikes and the segments of the body are very prominent. I donít think anybody would like to touch this fellow with its bear hands, as I think it could burn for a long time afterwards. The 4 different colours on its body is a great match and one cannot easily miss it as it display with great clarity. This is a great image with strong colours and good detail; even on the green stem it is captured. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

hello Jitti

excellent macro-photo of this insect, fine POV,
fine focus with great sharpness and details,
i also love to see details of the blurred background,



Hello jitti,

Great macro.
Beautiful colours with excellent definition.
Light,focus and sharpness are superb.
Good note.

Hi Jitty,
phantastic bizarre creature presented with good details all over in a nice composition. I like the soft light in the shade of trees, and the well controlled rich colours.
With thanks, and best regards,
