Spike

By DavidJHolmes
Actias Selene - Indian Moon Moth

This is the larvae of the Actias Selene - Indian Moon Moth. Hatched on monday and was only 8mm in length!

This was about as close a crop I could get without losing any of the detail.

It looks soooo sweet. I love the huge space around him, makes him look all the more vulnerable. Well caught.

Such a shame that we couldn't see him even closer up, but I see he's really quite a tiny chap!

Would extension tubes allow me to get a higher magnification? I really want to get close!
I must have missed this earlier when combing through the pages. Nice work! I like the tight crop!
