Hello Jose,
What a totally amazing caterpillar you are showing us today!
Your excellent focus brings out the texture of this "hairy" larva.
Do you know what the adult looks like?
Nature is just full of surprises.
TFS. : )

Nice shot of the strange looking catterpillar. You seem to have a liking for these fascinating creatures, yet not so much photographed, creatures. Good composition and details. Thanks for sharing.

That is quite a catipiller. Interesting well taken.


Amigo José Roberto, você é realmente um mestre com a Fuji! ... esta foto é limpo, arrumado, definido, sem lacunas em detalhe. Muito bom trabalho!
Além disto, esta lagarta se parece com um cachorro poodle! ha ... ha ... :) Quanto cabelo! aqui na Venezuela não vi nenhum semelhante.
Parabéns pela sua técnica depurada, suas fotos têm qualidade reflex! poucas pessoas conseguir isso com câmeras bridge. Cumprimentos, feliz domingo para você e sua família.

Hola Jose Roberto.
Un Macro de alta calidad y nitidez. La pequeña Oruga luce sus finos detalles del pelo gracias a la calidad de la fotografia.
Bello fondo difuso que le da mas valor a la imagen.

Hallo Jose
I can say much more than a wonderful macro, but I'll leave it to it. It is almost like looking through a telescope, it is so clear and blameless it is excellent. Perfect photography in all aspects. If I say more, I am going to tell you that I am terribly jealous, and that I envy you, but I won't tell you that. Everything in this image is first class and worth a huge A+. Thanks for sharing this very interesting creature. It was indeed a pleasure stopping by your gallery. Best regards.

Ciao J.R. Razor details and impressive DOF. Excellent contrast and very good light's management. Very well done.
