Simply magnificent! WOW!!!
It's rare to see that much magnification on TN so this is a really great treat :)
The details and light are amazing considering the time and equipment that you used for the photo.
A really cool and informative note, too.
Bravo and TFS

What an amazing picture you have posted here. Fantastic sharpness with very good details. An interesting shot which not many have seen. Also followed by a very good and educational note telling how insects breath. That is exactelly what TN is about.
Well done and thaks for sharing and telling.

Very interesting stuff Peter. This is a first on TN as far as caterpillar physiology goes :)
Excellent notes explaining what we're looking at and the "modus operandi". Interesting technique as well.
A great post,
Very well done.

Hola Peter. Exelente macro, solo atravez de la fotografia se puede apreciar estos pequeños orificios de las Orugas. Felicidades.
This is a heck of an impressive shot! I tried on a couple of occasions to shoot with a 50mm lens reversed on a 200mm lens. I gave it up because controlling the camera shake, light and framing at such magnification was extremely difficult and taking a decent shot required a lot of time. At least I could shoot as many frames as I wanted, which 15 years ago wasn't possible without additional expense (the film and processing). What you're showing here is not easily obtainable and, therefore, deserves our applause. Congratulations,

Well done, impressive magnification and scanning of the slide film.
Good note; should be useful for the large numbers of school kids that visit this site looking for info.
