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.
A excellent V1
Looks very pretty, but lethal - DO'NT TOUCH IT!!!
Nooo...I'd never ever touch any furry caterpillar. But thanks for the warning, Chris
Oh, Andrew, how cute
Do you know what he/she is going to turn into? Carol
It's amazingly beautiful Andrew - but those spikes do look lethal! Love v1.
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
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
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.
1- he is beautiful! love his sharp spines and the fantastic yellow !
2- What a great driveway you have!
Such a lovely and colourful fellow. Three great captures of him.........Sandy
V1 for me, Andrew. Keep him/her/it on the straight and narrow
Love the colour!
Terrific colour Andrew
That is so bright..no chance he would escape the bird table...sorry Andrew
Great set and going for V3 love it
What a beauty! I bet it turns into a stunning butterfly or moth! Well captured with super detail!
He would make a rather splendid pipe cleaner Andrew !!
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....
Interesting set Andrew.
Nice set, Andrew, could it be a Bristled Minor Boggbrush caterpillar, no, on second thoughts it's the wrong colour.
wonderful detail andrew brilliant colours v1 for me today a cracker nice one
Would keep my distance, but three great shots of this very yellow caterpillar. Wonder what he is going to be?
Fabulous detail and colour in these marvellous macros, this caterpillar could easily be confused as a flower from the bottlebrush plant
What a spikey, hairy yellow thing! Love them more as butterflies...
wonderful set of shots.
you manage to find an id? lesley
a creeping bottlebrush? Can you train them to do the dishes
I like no 3 best against the green
