I'm sure you weren't too disappointed to get this as an alternative to bee-flies, Brian.
There are prickles and hairs in abundance here, it's only the flower that has bothered to shaveSmile.

Brilliant colours and pin sharp detail in this impressive macro, you may not have snapped your target species but the clicks should bee flying in for this one!

I've only got one question: How is it possible that there is no velcro effect beween the two types of prickles Smile

Incredibly prickly sharp shot!

So funny if the caterpillar went "Ouch!" while crawling over the plant's hairs Grin
