I like a lot this macro.
It's so well focused, plenty of details.
The POV is so good, showing us a frontal view of the insect.
The colors are well saturated, naturals, with no excess.
The composition is very well balanced.

at first I thought it was a flower, boy was I wrong. This caterpillar is literally creeping towards me. Great POV and excellent sharp details. Very well composed with a superp DOF and great colors.
Una nueva imagen de Argentina estimado Oz... debes estar visitando Buenos Aires nuevamente.
Excelente macro con gran agudeza, claridad y foco, gracias a un atinado DOF y punto de vista.
Los colores captados son intensos, pero bien iluminados, sin excesos o sobre exposición.
Me agrada el encuadre que elegiste para su presentación.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo

THAT is an impressive macro, Oz.
The details and exposure are spot-on.
Fantastic POV showing all the bristles.
The colors are amazing.

This is a really cool picture, I love the exploding colors, I feel like its a train in the shape of a caterpillar coming right at me. Neat shot Oz. :)
And hello again! :)
This time a very nice close-up and beautiful caterpillar portrait :)
I like a lot details which are very good here, especially if we note that it is not easy to keep good DOF in case of species with so many morphological structures on its body. Really I also have to say that without your note I would not say that this caterpillar belongs to Saturnidae family. So thanks for interesting lesson of entomology!
PS. I also have one question :) In the gallery of PES (please check a link from my intro) there is a gallery designated to Cicindelidae species. I try to ask always and everyone if it is possible to include also his/her pictures of this amazing beetle group in this gallery (of course the copyright belongs only to the author of photo). As I see in your TN gallery a picture of Calomera aulica (the correct name for Lophyridia aulica) I would like to ask if you agree to put this picture also in our web site among tiger beetles from other regions of the world :) Thank you in advance for the answer :)
