[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pale tussock Moth caterpillar is a very unusal colour, being this deep shade of pink, this norm is like these 2 images one of mine from a while back PALE TUSSOCK CATERPILLAR and this one posted by Majka Baranowska (furja) also today from Poland.
This seems a very dark variation on the normal.
hope you like him, yours Robert

Hi Robert,
The caterpillar is and interesting colour of pinkish purple indeed. It kind of reminds me of some old women who would dye their hair this colour, at least its natural to this critter. Good photo, regards

Excellent sharp shot - it's the amazing colour of the caterpillar against the equally amazing colour of the background that strikes me first! Looks very interesting vertically.

Hi Robert,
You caught great details here; I like the colors of its little hair. This is a very good POV and composition. Well done and thanks,
