I spotted my first caterpillar yesterday, about time too This beauty will eventually turn into one of my favourite butterflies, a swallowtail, as pictured in V.3.
Top job, Carol.
Wow wow wow Carol...an amazing set, it always amazes me that these turn into such beautiful butterflies, thanks for showing us V3 as well...excellent
Excellent images Carol !! Even the worm is lovely
I agree with Colleen, wow and how amazing it is to see how this caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly but we can see the colours are there even in its larva stage. all threa are fantastic images.
It should go to book on Entomology.
These are amazing images Carol. Love how the caterpillar has a firm grip along the edge of the leaf.
Yay! Another swallowtail to wait for
BEAUTIFUL shots, Carol, and the shot of the swallowtail in V3 is AWESOME.
This has to be one of the most caterpillars (and butterflies) around, to me.
A beauty in both forms.
A well handsome chappie.....
Isn't mother nature incredible?
Fat and chubby one day then abeautiful fly away the next....
A caterpillar that actually bears some resemblance to its butterfly.
Truly stunning images Carol!
Excellent set of images Carol
Nice set of images Carol.Ted
stunning, the detail is mazing
A beautiful creature Carol, so well photographed, especially V1.
Three excellent shots , like them all ES v2....
has to be V1 for me good use of the shallow dof Carol fine work
V1 reminds me strangely of the front end of the Mallard steam locomotive. But with a different paint job...
Incredibly beautiful imagery Carol
LOL to Moira's train relationship, but I see what she means!
I love the angle of V1 and the caterpillar going along the leaf edge, Carol, but prefer the extra detail shown in V2.
All three are great............John
... or a big, fat, juicy titbit for a bird . Lovely colour and clarity, Carol, could almost be the illustration for the 'Very Hungry Caterpillar'
Very beautiful set Carol
The one caterpillar I can ID because of its colour being similar to the butterfly, splendid shots Carol
Three excellent images Carol. V2 has to be my fav today. It's awesome.
wonderful set i love v1 because it looks like the caterpillar is coming straight out of my monitor
Superb set, Carol, - looks like the sun is still shining on you - it's absolutely peeing down here!
Another WOW series Carol. What a superb set.
It seems the colour of caterpillar remains on the butterfly, lovely shots Carol.
Even V1 has beautiful colours Carol, equal marks as they are all stunning captures.
A train Moira....I'm with you I think, maybe we get out more, lovely set of shots Carol. Like them all.
V2 for me. Great detail and composition.
When I saw V1 as a thumb nail I thought it was a train on a monorail. Silly me.
Three stunning captures
Great set of images especially like V1.
Beautiful images Carol....
I've never seen a better looking caterpillar and the swallowtail butterfly is also a stunner.
You bring us all down to earth to appreciate the beauty of nature.
Marvellous nature. Superb images.
Fabulous captures and very interesting!
What beautiful markings! A cracking detailed set as always, Carol
A sort of before and after take here, Carol: excellent shots of the caterpillar and what it will eventually become.
Macro photography at its best, Carol!
Stunning, just stunning.
These are wonderful Carol, the caterpillar markings are really something.
Fantastic shots again Carole, I cant get over the detail you get time and time again.
Superb macro work
Amazing macro Carol,
like V1 today.
I so love no,1.
Beautiful set up ,no,2 is nice but to see no,3 ,,,stunning.
These are amazing images
Beautiful at both stages of its life cycle.
Beatiful even as a caterpillar
Gosh, beautiful, both the caterpillar and the butterfly. If I were you I'd take it hostage and not let it go until it had become a butterfly and I'd taken a photo of it!!!
I love this caterpillar Carol, you manage to capture its face very well nice set
Wonderful images. Obviously the caterpillar is as beautiful as the butterfly!
Absolute stunners Carol!!!!!! First Class Images!!!
Great view and angle of shot. super macro Carol. paul
Their caterpillars are as interesting as the butterfly, you have shown the detail so well

V2 and v3 are stunning Carol, surely one of these should have been the lead
