Oruga de la especie Papilio machaon, antes de crisalidar, suspensa sobre un ramo de Hinojo.

Las orugas del macaón (Papilio machaon) comen plantas de la familia de las umbelíferas, como el hinojo y la zanahoria, frecuentes en los lastonares, y de la familia de las rutáceas, como la ruda, frecuente en el lastonar de Brachypodium retusum y en los matorrales soleados. Primero son negruzcas, con manchas rojas y una gran mancha blanca en el dorso, pero al crecer cambian a un tono verde con anillos negros, cada uno de ellos provisto de seis manchas rojizas. Si se sienten amenazadas despliegan un par de glándulas rojas en forma de cuernos -el osmeterio- que desprenden un fuerte olor que disuade los depredadores. Son bastante grandes, pudiendo llegar a superar los 4 cm de longitud.

La crisálida es generalmente de color verde o gris pardo.

Una buena definición de oruga es “estómago ambulante”. Efectivamente, la oruga es muy voraz y lo primero que hace al nacer es comerse la cáscara del huevo. El crecimiento de la oruga es rapidísimo y espectacular: multiplica su peso por tres mil desde que nace.

Hello Nicolas,
A gorgeous picture of the Common Swallowtail larva! Fantastic colours and super close-up details! Thank you very much,
Goran

Hola Nicolas!
Una foto maravillosa. Preciosos colores, buen detalle y composicion. Quizas, el punto de vista podia haber sido un poquito hacia la derecha para enfocar la oruga entera (pero, tampoco me molesta tanto). Muy bonito el fondo, tambien. Me gusta muchisimo. Saludos,
Mark

Hi Nicolas
A splendid capture with impact of this lovely swallowtail caterpillar and I just love the POV.
The composition is excellent and the colours are stunning. The DOF is spot-on and it shows amazing details on the insect. The BG is a stunner and the exposure control was perfect and you made full use of the available light.
Very well done and TFS.

Loot

Colors and composition are brilliant. Pic is very detailed.
A non-broken Hinojo would have been a plus, but I don't mind much.

Hola nimou, preciosos y nitidos colores, buen POV y buen encuadre...Saludos Sira

This picture is so well thought out. I love the way the caterpillar curls with the plant. It creates such a dynamic picture. The colors are really nice together with the composition and focus. I especially like the bright greens against a brown background. It's simply perfect.

GREAT!

wow that Kodak Really puts out some great images. This shot is amazing. The color is amazing and the sharpness is really good. Wish you could have gotten a bit more DOF to get the entire worm in focus. I forgot to mention, the Bokeh or what I like to call "Creamy background" is awesome.

Nice shot with beautiful colours. The curves also look good.

amazing close up, TFS Ori
