Hi TN friends,

last year I show you a picture of the Caterpillar of Deilephila elpenor . Today the Butterfly was landing at my arm. I tried to place it on a plant but it comes back to my arm 3 times.

That is the reason why I tried to make the picture at this way.

You will find the Caterpillar at my gallery

great macro. good details.

Ciao Sascha. Never seen MF! TFS this impressive close up in stunning details.


Hello Sascha
I imagine that with one hand you were holding the butterfly and with the other shooting!! And probably this is the reason that you could not have another pov with this interesting species. It is pretty much ok....

Best regards,

LOVE THIS!!!! awww...and what a sweet looking butterfly!! Never saw this species before..just precious story and capture
