Hey, people Smile

I found this wee fellow in the driveway today. Never seen it before. Isnít that such a snazzy yellow??

V3 was taken where I found him BUT he was moving and the grass stalk was moving as well so the pic ainít that sharp.

Vs 1 and 2 were taken with the grass stalk snipped and laid on the driveway.

I have no idea, Carol. Don't know much about caterpillars and their end results. In fact, I don't even know if this will turn into a butterfly or a moth! Your question has piqued my interest , though. Will try my luck at Googling Smile

Nicely captured, Andrew. Had a google myself and came up with very similar catterpillars in Asia which arch their bodies to flash the black barking as a warning when disturbed. Nobody knew what they were though Sad

V3 is brilliant, the best by far of these, potentially - it has a star-burst feel.
Try reducing Brightness and increase Contrast just a wee bit on V3, darken Midtones a bit in Levels, and burn some the detail on the body - I think it would give more substance.

He looks very much like the larvae of the moth known as a Pale Tussock, at it's 2nd or 3rd instar. Moths shed their skins several times before crysalisation as they get larger and this is know as the instar stages, but I can't be sure Good macro image all the and one I'd like to capture. well done.

I think you are trying a very hard image...
It one I not sure I would try..
You got the subjet matter on a blade of grss but B/G is all worng..
I not sure about the angle you taking it at....
You have detail and sharpness...
I see what you are trying to show all of us...
You done very well to get image..
May be a little more thought so we can enjoy the image more...
Do not get me wrong you done a great job but there a long way to go to make it very enjoyable for everyone..

That is why V3 works best....

Nice set, Andrew, could it be a Bristled Minor Boggbrush caterpillar, no, on second thoughts it's the wrong colour. Wink

Fabulous detail and colour in these marvellous macros, this caterpillar could easily be confused as a flower from the bottlebrush plant
