Had a feeling this might be one of yours Bri and I wasn't wrong Smile Awesome stuff and of great interest to me as believe it not I've never seen one Sad Well not the caterpillar anyway. Quality image and one I'm very envious off, but I'll get my own back tomorrow methinks Wink

how well the caterpillar and the curve of the poppy bud intersect.
And the macro quality is wonderful.

Love all the curves and spikes, how do you get them to perform such tricks for you?

What a beaut...and so brilliantly captured, Brian! Goodness.

The cat seems to be swinging with the wrong species, though. I mean, they're both furry...but still!
