The framing here is very well done, and creating a dynamic composition!
Macro part is well done, good details in the caterpillars...
Interesting to see the size difference!

They certainly are agricultural pests despite their good looks, JC. I remember people in my village smearing the vegetable plants in their kitchen gardens with ashes to keep them away and it always worked!
With the use of fill flash, you have captured these two caterpillars very well. The colours and details stand out sharply in this picture.

You're right to ID these as some sort of lepidopterous caterpillars.
To take this a little futher you can see that by the placing of the legs these are some species of looper moth (Geometer) caterpillar and as you suggest the warning colouration can mean that they are poisonous to most predators.
Good comp., lighting and sharpness.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

What a nice colours, details and composition of your picture. Razor sharpness, brightness of the colours impresses imagination. Diagonal structure of your shot is very impressive and pleasant to eye. My compliments and TFS.

So now you are in midsummer time and insects are in their caterpillar stage. You show us this stage of their development with their colours bright and warning...

Hello Jitti !
Great capture, it's great to have 2 caterpillars on the same picture - a big one and a small one. Excellent sharpness and details, beautiful colors, excellent use of your flash, and a beautiful black BG which makes the caterpillars stand out nicely. Beautiful composition too. Very well done !

very nice shot, I loke the use of flash giving you this dark BG. Colors and details are wonderful. Very nice POV and good composition. I also could see this with a tighter crop and a portrait format.

Que lindas cores tem estas lagartas!!
Adorei o contraste que o fundo negro criou trazendo mais exuberância aos tons de verde da vegetação e brancos e negros das duas larvas!!!
Muito bonita foto!!
Obrigada por compartilhar conosco!!
Saudações do Brasil!!
