Fantastic focus and light, Brian. And you're right about the face. He's probably thinking, "Why do I have to turn into a moth? I LIKE crawling around and eating leaves and being squidgy..."

Hi Brian, not surprised he has a sad face, probably knows he's about to be eaten any minute Wink
Superb as usual,

Superb indeed, although I'm not fond of caterpillars!! I see the sad face which has softened my dislike a little! Smile
