Hi Monika, great shot with excellent details and colours. Also well composed within the frame. That is certainly one hairy creature, TFS.

What a beautiful "arched" composition, Monika!
Hats off to you for finding this ideal setting and then doing a great job of a micro of this diabolic caterpillar.
Needless to say, this is perfection incarnate from every point of view.
Thanks for sharing it.
Excellent, I love it! A punk rocker caterpillar :-) Beautiful clear detail, perfect colours and excellent composition, I really like the arch of the Caterpillar and plant against a clean background.
When I was very small I used to look for Caterpillars and Spiders, any kind of bugs really and I remember my skin itching from the Caterpillars. I had forgotten about that until I read your note. Happy memories.
Great note, excellent post.

What a brush this one is!!
Monika, this is an excellent composition, the POV is good, and the little fellow is quite stunning, sharp and so clear to see. Well done,
Great shot here, Monika! Good framing, great sharpness and proper exposure. Very interesting little fellow and informative description, too. Did you maybe think about raising your POV a litle, so that the background would become single toned, even though the tip of the sorrel would then possibly loose some sharpness? Just a thought, 'cause I like it a lot anyways.

Superb composition Monika.
Here you've made a simple shot into a masterpiece of how to perfectly frame a catapillar in a field.
Brilliant work, no nits.
Your note about the hairs being irritating was very interesting, I never would of thought of that.

excellent closeup of this hairy caterpillar.
Great details and the colors are excellent. POV, sharpness and DOF are very good. Beautiful composition.
Hallo Monika, nice picture of the A. caja caterpillar with the plant (I think it is Rumex ?) bridging the two sides of the picture in an elegant arc. In addition the picture is 'smoothly' divided in the horizontal direction by the transition from the meadow to the trees. Excellent composition and sharpness.

Great pov and framing here! Caterpillar's hairs look fantastic! bg is great too! Yellow dots from flowers, and the dark green on the upper side made the bg wonderful!
btw, looking your notes I prefer two km far from the hairy one, as your house :-) Interesting note too!
