Caterpillars are fascinating to me, Christophe. This one is another amazing one. You caught it with sharp details and great light. All those spikes and white dots, are they for defense purposes? Great job and TFS. : )

Une très jolie photo, Christophe. Une excellente composition. J'aurais été tenté de lui laissé plus d'espace devant la tête puisque c'est elle la vedette de cette image.
L'arrière-plan est sublime.
Merci bien.

Hello Christophe!
Wonderful - fgreat colour, perfect sharpness and interesting POV. But the most - I've never saw this caterpillar before!

Hard to believe that this black monster is related with Inachis! Looks amazing. Shape and black/white colours are great.

Well done Christophe, this is the first time I have ever seen a caterpiller of this species. A tricky shot to pull off because of all the nettles. I think you did well in isolating him. Good details and colour. Well done.

Great shot Christophe,
Good sharp detail and good POV. Nicely exposed and superb colours. Good composition.
Well captured, thanks for posting.

Superbe chenille Christophe !
Très bonne gestion de la PDC, avec un arrière plan terrible.
Nico.

This is a scary looking caterpillar, Christophe, but a great capture of it.

You have also re-inforced to me that you are what you eat....

Well done on this posting and thank you.

What is the creature at the top left?

Christophe, to me, unusual caterpillar.

Great pov and composition. I also like the contrast between the caterpillar and the green shades.

Hi Christophe,
Excellent work here. The composition, framing, colors, and sharp detail, are very well done. Great Shot!

Bonjour Christophe,je n'avais pas remarqué cette super photo de chenille. La lumiére est magnifique ainsi que la composition. Cette chenille est trés photogenique et son piqué remarquable. Félicitations Didier.

a great composition and good colours and DOF
sharpness is great!(tripod is really a must!)
