Absolutely stunning, Terry. Wonderful detail, pose and colours, isolated to perfection by those clean rich bg tones. The skin textures are remarkable.

A stunning caterpiller captured perfectly. Love the shape of the butterfly, and the sharp detail in the caterpillar. I often find that the skin of Hawkmoth caterpillars often looks almost out of focus. I think the wierd texture reflects the light funny or something. This one looks stunningly sharp however!

The one at the top of my list of caterpilars I'd love to see! I understand they can squeek!
