Two weeks ago, we just were "hunting" some dragonflies in the forrest, my husband was calling me to have a look to what he found.
This wonderful caterpillar, sitting on the leafs of blackberries. I couldn't beleave, because I never thought I will find a caterpillar at the end of september.
This is a Knotgrass - Acronicta rumicis.
Pretty caterpillar, unimposing butterfly, it's grey.

Very good macro, Sabine.
This is a hairy beuaty and you catch very nicely.
The colours are amazing, good details and nice POV.
Very well done.

Great macro Wishnu ! Colors, compo, DOF, background (except maybe this vertical black area on the left which is a bit disturbing), everything is under control. Did you use a flash diffuser in order to get a smoother flash effect ?

Classic shot Sabine! Very colorfull, sharp, detailed. Good composition and BG. Grey b-fly from so colorfull caterpillar? Nature is strange sometimes...

It is often the way that great caterpillars are plain , it goes the other way too with plai cats having colourful butterflies.
the image is well seen against the plain blue of the sky. the hairs are good against this BG. the one down point is the white spots which are over exposed, they could be darkened with the burn tool or with Shadows and Highlights if you are lucky enough to have Photoshop CS.
TFS yours Robert

Hallo Sabine,
habe gerade deine Bilder überflogen. Deine Makros sind eine Wucht. Auch der haarige Geselle auf diesem Bild ist super. Die Schärfenebene liegt exakt auf den vorderen Haaren. Man sieht sich bei TN oder TE.
Grüße ins Allgäu

Hi Sabine,

Great details and nice colors. POV is good too and so is DOF. Your crop is a little tight on the left though. Exposure is great. Well done & TFS!

A superb macro here. The colors, detail, and DOF look perfect to me. Perfect composition and backround. Excellent Work!

Hey Sabine,

STUNNING !!!! So sharp !!! :)

Well done --- this a really awesome shot.

Very special, and nice harmony of tones to compliment its hues, only its hair is a bit unkempt. What eyebrows! ;-)

Thats one shaggy monster, great colors, I would work on the blues of the sky though, reduce the magenta in it and induce cyans instead it would give you a better blue

She does look pretty (sort of reminds me of the Chinese dragon that people dance under!). Very colourful and the the details are nice and sharp. Good shot, thank you.

Hi Sabine - Danke für die Ampfer-Eule ;-).
