Bardzo dobry kadr, ostrość, kolor i kompozycja.
Tradycyjnie - perfekt!
Podoba się bardzo.
Hallo Monika, a nice scene which you captured well. On the segments, orange-brown spiracles and setae ('hairs') can be seen. It will be difficult to identify the species of this Geometride. Judged from the pattern of setae on the body and on the head capsule, this caterpillar represents the first or second larval stage. In most cases, these 'early' early stages look quite different compared to the final instar larvae. The problem is that you will not find pictures of the first developmental stages in text-books.
The picture, however, is nice even without identification.

Yes, I have seen them moving around like that, Monika, as if measuring the path with the length of their own bodies.
Very good macro with fine details of both the insect and the dandlion stub.

A great capture of this caterpillar.
Excellent detail,POV and DOF.
A great pose you caught.
Very well done.
Looks like he's going to rapal down with that piece of webbing attached to his leg haha. How can he sit there like that and not fall off? Great colors and DOF. Funny capture.
