A very nice macro of the caterpillar of D. elpenor. The head and front part of the body are super sharp to show the warning eye-markings with excellent clarity and natureal colours. The rest of the body that is OOF adds to the composition well.
If you let this full-grown caterpillar pupate in loose soil you will have the moth in June next year!
Thanks and best regards,
Ciao Sasha, lovely portrait of a beautiful, caterpiller, splendid sharpness, fine details and beautiful blurry BG, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

A very bizarre-looking beast, shows mimicry well, looking like the head of a snake more than a caterpillar. I think a little more depth of field to show more of the caterpillar in sharp focus might have been nice, but it's an attractive, unique image as shot.
