We had these caterpillars crawling all over the back garden at the end of last year. They munched a bunch, especially my chocolate peppermint plant, then went underground to wait for the right time to e-close into beautiful little white and orange moths. They have started appearing at the windows at night.

I think I'm going back to some of my candid shots next week - I've been experimenting with layers and filters this week just to try something new.

Thanks for looking, may you all have a great weekend.

I do like your background, as much for the golden glow as for the texture. I wonder if that glow is from the original image or added?
But the hair-do is the star!

Moira, I shot the caterpillar outside with a painted canvas behind it - I've added a slight orange warming filter to give it a bit more oomph Smile along with some paper texture.

Love the way you composed the shot and the background and texture work really well. The whole image is very pictorial, and although I would never dream to have a photo of a caterpillar on the wall, this one I would have any time Smile
