Its Changing Day Again
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Its those not so little Buff tip moth caterpillars again (Their 4th appearance), I have been worried about them since Saturday because they seemed to have stopped eating and have just been keeping in little groups not moving. Today I know why they must have been suffering growing pains because today they started to shed their old skins and change their ridged eye covering allowing them to expand their heads.|
The Yellow head you see here has increased in volume by 4 since it shed the black eye covering this morning and is now waiting for the new skin to dry and harden to a shiny black again before it can start to eat again. i expect tomorrow they will go on an eating binge and put some more length on to go with their newly enlarged head at present 35mm.
Cropped slightly nearly full frame
sharpen with USM
and hope you like as much as I do

Linda escena familiar :)
Me gusta como se amontonan estas pequeñas plagas, su colorido y forma. Artisticamente no es optima, pero no deja de ser intersante.
Saludos y gracias
Good reflection of this knot of caterpillars. Fine natural colours. To my opinion it is very difficult to choose were the sharpness be focussed on because the subject is so much. I think you framed the picture in the right way.
Interesting note too.

excellent and very interesting capture. Shots and information like this make learning so much mor fun. Very nice details and good sharpness. Very nice crop also.
