Doesn't look as though that bud is going to make it to the flowering stage, Brian Sad. Super detail in that furry beastie. Carol

I'm just delighted to see anything that doesn't look like a robin or a bauble, BrianTongue. I'm getting quite attached to this hairy little caterpillar and his chosen flower bud, but certainly haven't tired of him.

Fabulous work again, Brian! Love the way the the curves in the Caterpillars body follow the curves of the flower stalk. Brilliant detail, textures and tones and so well isolated by that clean bg colour.
Superbly composed on the diagonal.
