Hello Laurens
Excellent macro with low POV, vivid colors and perfect focus, a clear BG too.

Hola Laurens,
he pasado un buen rato intentando identificar tu oruga, pero me ha sido imposible, sorry !
Buen encuadre y colores, aunque algo justa de enfoque.

Hello Lou.
An excellent macro of a moth caterpillar that could be either Saturniidae or Arctiidae.
The lateral POV shows its features with excellent sharpness and colours as it begins to spin a cocoon on the leaf.
Thanks and greetings from a very grey Sweden.

Hallo Lou,
Wat een schatje, je zou hem bijna aaien. Uitstekende scherpte en mooie heldere kleuren. Vanuit een fantastisch standpunt genomen met een stukje blad op de voorgrond en de groene achtergrond.

Hello Laurens, wonderful close-up shot of this colourful caterpillar with nice composition and POV.
TFS and G's,

Hi Laurens,
you dare to step into the realm of caterpillars :-) Of course I perfectly agree with that, they are nice, good looking and unhurried little monsters, worth every effort to learn about them. As far as ID is concerned, that's another pair of shoes. I have consulted H. Bellmann, 2003. "Der neue Kosmos Schmetterlingsführer" and D. Carter, et al. 2005. "Guide des Chenilles d'Europe" and my only suggestion is that it is a Heterogynidae. Heterogynis penella occurs in many places in the Mediterranean.
My best regards

Hi Laurens. This is unusual looking caterpillar. You have taen it with such detail and rich colours. I can see evey little hair on its body. well taken TFS.

Hello Lou,
a superb macro shot of this caterpillar taken with outstanding sharpness and impressive detail, splendid bright colours, excellent POV and composition, the WS also is a superb macro.
Best regards

Hello Lou,

An excellent macro with striking colors, sharpness & details. Very nicely taken & presented. TFS & regards.


Hi Lou,

Wonderful macro capture of a Zygaenid (i think: based on a book entitled "Atlas der Raupen europaeischer und kleinasiatischer Schmetterling" by Hausmann, A. & Miller A., 2009. Verlag Pfeil, München) caterpillar from lateral POV with nice focus, soft lighting, excellent details and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice new week MF!


Hi Laurens,

Superb macro capture from the yellow-black caterpillar with wonderful details!
The colors of the caterpillar are very well shown and perfectly natural. The sharpness and POV are great and the contrast between the blurry green BG and the caterpillar, is simply great.

best regards,
