Caterpillar of the Vapourer Moth.
Used a bit of a technical set up for this.
Got a stem from a plant in the garden fixed it across a flower pot to a watering can on a patio table that was lined up so that my lawn was the b/ground.
The caterpillar was on a leaf so I coaxed it onto the stem - took a series of shots of it moving along the stem then put it back amongst the shrubs. I liked this mid stride shot.
Hope you like it too - thanks for stopping by.
Great shot, well worth the trouble of moving it
Brilliant capture and set up.
Well worth the effort for this fantastic shot Brian.
Good close up
Oh this is good
What a cracker.
Wow - now that's dedication! Superb close-up detail. Fab shot!
spot on Bri.
all that work p aid off !!!!! a brill shot
Great setup. I found one of these the other day but couldn't work out how to get it to stop curling up so that it was all in focus. Good idea to put it on something thin and straight, controls the point of focus perfectly.
Now if I could just find another one to try again.
Superb shot with great detail and colour
A big thankyou to * NickBrandon * for giving his User Award to this image. Greatly appreciated.

Cracking shot, Brian. The detail, the background and the slo-mo all come together here. Good stuff.

This is brilliant, the effort you put into getting this was worth all the effort.
What a brilliant set-up, and it has certainly paid off. I still struggle with these hairy little beasties, but love them lots.
You chose a good one here Brian. It may have been a bit of a bother to set up but surely this made it all worthwhile.
