Papilio machaon, mature caterpillar on carrots in my garden - I do leave some carrots for the butterfly to thrive on.
This is a defensive posture. Although the caterpillar looks quite colourful, it is in fact surprisingly mimetic.

Nice Macro

Very good colours and good macro, there is a problem with resizing the picture I suppose, the surface of the picture is not smooth and we can see the pixels.

De très belles couleurs, le détail est excellent. J'aime bien les petites pattes. Bravo!

Amazing macro Philippe, I love the detail and colours, very nice work.

Fabulous macro!

Excellente photo, cette chenille donne un merveilleux papillon.
On la trouve égalemment sur les pousses de fenouil.

It's a caterpillar of a Papilio machon.
Is very beautiful indeed!
They usualy have that position on resting on a branch and before matamorphosing into a pupa.
Very good closeup!
