[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Endromis versicolora - family Endromididae.

One of the most beautifull caterpilars I know.
The imago is also very atractive.
You can find them in early spring on birch trees (Betula L.)

Hi Christopher,

Congratulations for capturing such a nice creature. There's plenty of young birches around here, and I saw empty cocoons, but still have not seen neither imagines nor lavae...

Best regards,

Dmitry

Hi

Excellent colors and composition.
Great moment captured.

Those spots are actually very hypnotic if you look at them for a while. Must be that contrasting green and the rest of the geometry. Excelent capture

Looks like a very strong caterpillar bowing the leafe on this way. Very nice capture, you set the contrast well seeing green on green. I like the POV and the colors are great. Thanks.

Hi Christopher,
very pretty and interesting document of a well camouflaged caterpillar of pretty Endromis versicolora.
I have not been aware of how much that species resembles a hawkmoth's caterpillar. Fascinating.
Perfectly presented. Thank you!
Best regards,
Peter

I have to say that this is a very striking caterpillar. the white spots are white something...

very nicely done, but I couldn't help wondering, if you had just change position slightly... well never mind.

A very beautul caterpillar indeed, Christopher.
The details on it are very sharp and clear, and the color is just gorgeous. Good POV as well.
I appreciated the link that shows what it will metamorphose into. That is always interesting.
TFS. : )
