Great 'face' of this 'snake' ;-) Full mimicry working very good. It remainds me worm from Dune books :-) Very good post Julia!
Very strange for me but nice photo.
Wow, what a striking shot....I've never seen one of these before.
Nice capture.DOF great...
Thanks for posting.
Oh Julia, what a sad day for your birthday. I am sorry for you and your family. I hope you are ok. I'm sure Uncle Peter will have loved this shot of the caterpiullar - I though it was a snake at first.
Good capture, excellent macro work. Well done.
Great headshot Julia! Very well composed with excellent details and POV. Great colors, light and DOF for this type of shot. Excellent note..I like it, Very well done.
Happy birthday Julia!
And I'm sorry for your uncle.It's wonderful shot,POV,lighting,details and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)
Great shot Julia,
Firstly, I'm sorry to hear about your Uncle Peter.
Secondly, It might be difficult, but have a happy Birthday Julia. I'll have a beer in your honour later tonight.
This is a great shot of a big fat finger, very clear and well detailed. good colours and sharpness. Nicely composed and well captured.
Thanks for posting.
Hi Julia, This is a lovely shot. I love the different tones of brown and the sharpness is superb. You chose a nice DOF and composition, I like it. Apropos of my post on forum - I may post mine later, it is the green version and less colourful I think but still interesting to look at. TFS and very well done :)
I didn't read the bit about your birthday and uncle until now. I'm sorry you lost someone you clearly loved Julia. I hope you can enjoy your birthday as you know he would have wanted you to. *hug*
Hi Julia, very nice shot. I always think these look like a snake's head or sometimes a puppy! The focus is good on the head and very good exposure and composition. Good note too.
Well done, sorry to hear about your uncle.
It is tough to say Happy Birthday, and sorry for your loss at the same time. But, I love the up close and personal look at this hawk-moth. Eye popping colors and fine detail. Nice Shot!

Opened this pic of yours intending to see a snake of some sort. Great work. Excellent shot.

this is an excellent shot, showing the distinctive "dangerous beast" snake mimikry of an elephant hawkmoth caterpillar in a most impressive and straightforward way. Staring wide open eyes and an open mouth with two poison teeth are surprisingly well imitated, and you have shown that stunning phenomenon from a perfectly chosen point of view with crisp and clear details and rich colours. Great!
Thank you for sharing. Beautiful birthday posting, my congratulations!
And a beautiful dedication to your beloved uncle. Sorry for the great loss to you and your family.
All the best to you,

You have got a great great shot of this caterpillar. I thought it was snake. Awesome closeup/macro, made it seem HUGE! Truly a mini-beast. I love your colors and composition. The angle you shot from is VERY VERY good, dramatic.

I know this snake-like caterpiar. It's very interesting but also the imago is very nice. Your picture is great, it has very good, natural colours and composition. Thanks
